Colonial Williamsburg invites the Williamsburg community to attend a ceremony commemorating the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. The brief outdoor observance will be held on the steps of the Courthouse in Colonial Williamsburg’s Historic Area on Saturday, Sept. 11, at 8:45am, one minute before American Airlines Flight 11 hit the World Trade Center’s North Tower on that day.
The ceremony will begin with a drum cadence played by a member of The Colonial Williamsburg Fifes & Drums, and will include music, prayers, and reflections by community leaders including Cliff Fleet, president and CEO of The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation; Douglas Pons, mayor of Williamsburg; and Katherine A. Rowe, president of William & Mary. After the tolling of twenty chimes to mark the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, the ceremony will conclude by 9:15 am with “Amazing Grace” played by a lone bagpiper. Participants are encouraged to practice social distancing while visiting Colonial Williamsburg. Up-to-date COVID-19 health and safety policies are available at colonialwilliamsburg.org.
