Annual event draws as many as 20 cities to honor those who died on 9/11/01;

Rep. Larry Gonzales is featured speaker

 

TAYLOR, Texas – The public is invited to attend the annual Memorial March and Patriot Day observance, set for Monday, September 11, in downtown Taylor. The event is sponsored by the Taylor Fire Department (TFD). 

Rep. Larry Gonzales, who recently announced his decision not to seek re-election, is the featured speaker.

The Memorial March begins at 7 p.m. at Seventh Street and heads south along Main Street in downtown. Citizens will line Main Street to honor and observe firefighters and apparatus from Taylor, Jarrell, Weir, Lake Travis, Elgin, Coupland and Granger. More are expected to join. In years past, as many as 20 different cities have participated. However, due to Hurricane Harvey cleanup efforts, certain public safety crews from around the state may not be able to join the event in Taylor as before.

Following the Memorial March, there will be a program at Heritage Square Park, 400 N. Main Street. TFD Chaplain Matt Hudson will conduct the invocation and benediction, followed by speakers Mayor Brandt Rydell, TFD Chief Pat Ekiss and Rep. Gonzales. Lt. Robert Whitmore will lead "The Star Spangled Banner." The program includes raising of the flag, silent tribute, bagpipe players, a 3-volley gun salute and ringing of the bell.

Taylor is one of the few cities across the nation that continues to conduct a ceremony each year in honor of those who died serving on September 11, 2001, in the attacks on the USA.

For more information, please call 512-352-6992.
