Issaquah marks 9/11 anniversary
September 18, 2012
City leaders lowered flags to half-staff at Issaquah City Hall and other municipal buildings Sept. 11 to commemorate 11 years since the 9/11 attacks.
The federal government and local governments across the United States lowered flags at public buildings for the day — officially Patriot Day and the National Day of Service and Remembrance.
U.S. Sens. Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell and other elected leaders marked the anniversary.
“As we mark this solemn occasion, we do not need urging to remember the horror of that day: We will not and cannot ever forget it,” U.S. Rep. Dave Reichert, lawmaker for Issaquah and the 8th Congressional District, said in a statement.
In 2011, Issaquah marked 10 years since the attacks at a public ceremony on the Issaquah Community Center lawn.
