LYNNFIELD — The town of Lynnfield and the Rotary Club will host the annual 9/11 “First Responders Day” on the Common on Tuesday, Sept. 11.
Nearly 3,000 people were killed that day in 2001, when hijackers flew commercial airplanes into New York’s World Trade Center, the Pentagon and a Pennsylvania field in what was the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil.
Native son Garnet Edward “Ace” Bailey, 54, a pro hockey scouting director for the Los Angeles Kings, was killed aboard United Flight 175, which flew into the World Trade Center.
The solemn event will be held at 6 p.m. to honor the brave men and women who serve locally, and as a remembrance of the tragedy.
Following the brief ceremony, a free barbeque sponsored by the town of Lynnfield will be held.
