Warren County citizens listen to a speech paying tribute to the sacrifices of the heroes of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks — and the soldiers who fought to protect freedom in the decade since — during the 2012 edition of the 9/11 memorial ceremony held in downtown Warrensburg. The annual ceremony, the longest-running service of its kind in the region, is to be held tonight, Wednesday Sept. 11 at the Floyd Bennett Memorial Bandstand in Warrensburg.

The memorial service is hosted by the Warrensburg Volunteer Fire Co. and annually a dozen or so fire companies and ambulance squads in the region participate.
