UPDATE: Due to rain in the forecast, the September 11 Remembrance Ceremony will take place under the Memorial Park Bandshell, rather than near the Veterans Memorial.
On Monday, Sept. 11, 2023, the City of Wheaton invites the community to attend a ceremony of remembrance in Memorial Park, located at 225 Karlskoga Ave. Starting at 10 a.m., the annual September 11 Remembrance Ceremony will honor the individuals our community lost in the September 11 attacks and the military conflicts that followed. It also will honor all those who serve to protect our community, including the Wheaton Police and Fire Departments and all military personnel.
This year’s ceremony will include a welcome by Mayor Suess, the Wheaton Police and Fire Departments, Wheaton Municipal Band musicians, participants from Wheaton College, bagpiper Mike O’Donnell, and Pastor Josh Moody from College Church.
The ceremony will take under the Memorial Park Bandshell. We look forward to joining together as a community to remember all those we lost and honor those who sacrifice their lives to protect our community and our nation.
