Lebanon — Local police and fire officials will join Boone County Courthouse employees in a commemoration of the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon and the heroism of passengers who thwarted a fourth attack, with the ceremony beginning at 8:40 a.m. Tuesday.
The observance has been held every year since the 2001 attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people. Indiana Supreme Court Justice Steve David, who was then judge of Boone Circuit Court, organized an impromptu memorial service on the courthouse lawn late in the morning of Sept. 11.
If weather permits, the ceremony will be at the flagpoles on the southwest corner of the courthouse lawn. If there is bad weather, the event will be moved into the courthouse rotunda. The public is welcome and encouraged to attend.
