A ceremony planned in Anniston on Monday to mark the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks has been moved indoors due to a threat of rain.
The event, organized by the Center for Domestic Preparedness Employees Association, was to take place at 6 p.m. Monday at Centennial Park in Anniston, but because of weather forecasts that predict rain it’s been changed to the Anniston City Meeting Center at 6 p.m., according to a press release from the CDP on Friday.
CDP acting superintendent Tony Russell will provide opening remarks at the event, which is free and open to the public. Dr. Jeffrey Van Slyke of Jacksonville State University’s Department of Emergency Management will provide the keynote address.
Members of the Anniston Police and Fire departments, along with area emergency medical personnel, the Army National Guard and the Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office, will conduct a salute to fallen comrades and a wreath presentation during the ceremony.
The Anniston Police Department Honor Guard will also participate in the event.
