Grant County "Hero Day" & Yellow Ribbon Ceremonies

Friday, September 11, 2020

We invite you to join the Beyond the Yellow Ribbon of Grant County for our Proclamation Ceremonies on September 11th, 2020. We are planning two ceremonies to help encourage participation and awareness. Both of these events will serve as a somber remembrance and tribute to those whose lives have been lost or forever changed since the tragic events on September 11th, 2001 in our country. How fitting that on this day, which is also HERO DAY in Grant County, we rally to support the public servants in our midst that provide safety and security to our people. Join us in honoring the men and women, whom we consider Heroes in our County; those with Military affiliation, Law Enforcement, Fire and Rescue, Emergency Medical Services and their families. Our program will include a 9/11 remembrance and tribute to our Heroes offered by a variety of speakers, a prayer, playing of taps, a flyover by an antique military aircraft (T6 Warbird) and proclamation presentation.
