Week in Great Falls

Sept. 11 ceremony at the Freedom Memorial.

On Wednesday, Sept. 11, at 7 p.m., the Great Falls Freedom Memorial Committee will hold its annual 9/11 Ceremony at the site of the Freedom Memorial (behind the Great Falls Library at 9830 Georgetown Pike). This ceremony especially remembers the six citizens of the Great Falls community who died when Flight 77 crashed into the Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001. The speaker will be Robert J. Zoldos, a member of the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department for 20 years and currently operations deputy chief of A-Shift. On Sept. 11, 2001, he served as a Rescue Squad officer with Virginia Task Force One, responding to the attack at the Pentagon. Chief Zoldos will share his experiences and the work of his team. Members of the St. Thomas a Becket Family Choir will join us at the ceremony.

This ceremony is open to all and ample parking is available in the library parking lot. In case of rain, the ceremony will move into the library’s meeting room.
