Update: City Schools of Decatur will be closed Sept. 11 and Sept. 12 in anticipation of severe weather from Hurricane Irma. There’s no word on whether this event will be rescheduled.
Here’s our original story …
On Monday, Sept. 11, Decatur High school’s JROTC is hosting two services in remembrance of September 11, 2001.
There will be a morning program at 8:30 a.m., located at the flagpole on the frontside of the high school.
An afternoon program will take place in the Performing Arts Center auditorium at 2 p.m.
According to a recent press release, “these services will honor the memory of those who gave their lives on September 11, 2001 as well as recognizing members of the Decatur High School and City of Decatur community for their outstanding service.”
Both ceremonies are open to the public. If the weather is bad – a likely possibility with Hurricane Irma approaching the United States – the ceremony will move under the old library at the high school.
