A small gathering of fire responders came together at Douglas Park to commemorate the 20th anniversary of 9/11.

“The Surrey Firefighter Pipe Band gathered and gracefully marched onto the Spirit Square stage and played a set of songs honouring those who were impacted by 9/11,” recounted Langley City Coun. Rosemary Wallace.

Langley City firefighters were also in attendance to pay tribute.

“Although the event was not widely publicized, onlookers took to silence in appreciation of the opportunity to reflect on the memorial event,” Wallace said.

“My favourite was the last song of ‘Amazing Grace,’ which always sets the stage for remembering those that sacrifice their lives daily as our first responders do.”
