Southwest Harbor Fire Department to Hold 9-11 Memorial Procession
This Sunday, September 11, 2016 marks the 15th anniversary of the day that America was attacked. It's hard to believe but many of today's high schoolers have little or no recollection of that tragic day. The Southwest Harbor Fire Department invites the community to honor the memory of the 343 New York City Firefighters, as well as other first responders and citizens, who died in the attacks on the World Trade Centers 15 years ago.
The Southwest Harbor Firetrucks will travel through town in a procession that will start at the Southwest Harbor Fire Station and travel from Carroll's Hill down Maine Street and up Seal Cove Road and back down to Maine street. Continuing down Main Street, and up Village Green Way to the Ridge Apartments and back to Main Street. Continuing along Main Street to Sewall Road, down Alder Lane to Shore Road and then up Mansel Lane and back to Seawall Road. Continuing to Seawall and turning at Seawall Campground, returning to Main Street and turning onto Clark Point Road. Turning onto Dirigo Road, down High Road, onto Herrick Road and back to the Fire Station.
It's expected that the procession will take about 45 minutes.
Chief David Carter of the Sedgwick Fire Department will be attending as the Guest of Honor. He is the President of the Hancock County Firefighter's Association. He will be speaking after the procession at the Southwest Harbor Fire Station to firefighters and to the public who are invited (approx 9:45 AM)
