A presentation of colors will be performed by a joint honor guard of the Anaheim PD, followed by opening comments from Police Chief Raul Quezada, Mayor Tom Tait and Fire Chief Randy Bruegman. This will be followed by a choral performance from Loara High School and a reading of the Last Bell Ceremony.

Quezada, Bruegman together with the Anaheim City Council will present a ceremonial wreath in a display of respect to those who lost their lives.

Said Quezada: “We must never forget the events of 2001. This ceremony is to remember and honor those who lost their life on Sept. 11, 2001.”
