Mayor Urges Public to Observe Patriot Day

Events planned at fire stations and Veterans Memorial Garden

Mayor Chris Beutler encouraged the public to attend two public Patriot Day events in Lincoln Sunday, September 11, the 15th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the United States.

"While the images and emotions of that tragic day are still vivid in our minds 15 years later, we realize that students of high school age and younger don't share those memories," Mayor Beutler said. "It is important that we tell them the stories of those who perished and those who became heroes that day. They need to know how our nation came together and grew stronger. And we need to pass on our appreciation and gratitude for our veterans, those now serving in the military and their families."
