Residents are invited to attend to honor the victims and heroes at 3 p.m. on Saturday, September 11th.

In addition, Sea of Flags will be on display at the Great Lawn of City Hall for residents to visit. 

Regarding this year’s ceremony, Gina Orlando, who has organized 9/11 commemorations in Coral Springs since the tragedy, said, “Planning this year’s remembrance is more heartfelt as we pause to reflect and remember what occurred to our country 20 years ago. Organizing events to remember the victims and honor the many heroes who gave their lives to save others, is something I have been so proud to have been a part of for the last two decades. Coral Springs continues their commitment to Never Forget.”
