Several agencies will be honoring those who lost their lives on Sept. 11, 2001.

Brazil City Hall will conduct a ceremony beginning at 9 a.m. Tuesday.

"I think it's definitely worth taking some time to remember what happened that day," Brazil Mayor Ann Bradshaw said.

Bradshaw said all citizens are welcome to attend Tuesday's event, which will feature former Nazarene Rev. George Hewitt, Brazil City Fire Dept. firefighter Toby Archer and Brazil water treatment plant supervisor and minister Jake Raubuck as speakers.

Other events will take place as well.

The public is invited to attend a memorial flag ceremony on the front lawn of the Clay County Courthouse. There will be a moment of silence at 8:46 a.m., in honor of the innocent people who lost their lives as a result of the terrorist attacks.

President George W. Bush signed a proclamation on Sept. 4, 2007 directing that flags be flown at half-staff in honor of Sept. 11, otherwise known as Patriot Day.

Patriot Day was established by a joint resolution by Congress on Dec. 18, 2001.
