The public is invited to attend the City of O’Fallon’s annual Patriot Day ceremony, which will begin at 8:30 a.m. on Friday, September 9, at the City’s 9-11 First Responders Memorial.

The monument is located outside the O’Fallon Police Department entrance on the east side of O’Fallon’s Municipal Centre, 100 North Main Street, O’Fallon, Missouri 63366. It was created with steel salvaged from the attacks on New York City’s World Trade Center on September 11, 2001.

The event is dedicated to first responders, including the police, firefighters and paramedics who stepped forward to rescue victims of the attacks in 2001, as well the families of the fallen. The ceremony includes a moment of silence, a rifle salute and the placing of the wreath by the Police, Fire and Ambulance District Honor Guard. At the end of the ceremony, the public will have an opportunity to place flowers at the memorial.

The City of O’Fallon also will be hosting the Patriot Blood Drive in O’Fallon’s Municipal Centre (City Hall) from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.; walk-ins are welcome.
