The community is invited to join the Parker Teen Court and elected officials for the Flag of Honor Across America Memorial Ceremony on Saturday, Sept. 11 at Parker Town Hall, 20120 E. Mainstreet. The ceremony will begin at 10:03:11 a.m., which is the time Flight 93 was crashed by its hijackers 80 miles southeast of Pittsburgh, Pa., and will serve to remember and honor the 2,983 men, women and children who lost their lives in the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Following opening comments by Parker Mayor Jeff Toborg, members of the Parker Teen Court will read the names and biographies of 50 of the people who perished in the attacks. After these individuals are recognized, attendees will be invited to the flagpole in front of Town Hall to observe a moment of silence and raise both the United States Flag and the 9/11 Flag of Honor, which features the names of all of those who perished. The 9/11 Flag of Honor visited the 9/11 Memorial on June 29, 2021 and was on the Sacred Ground where the Twin Towers once stood and where the 9/11 Memorial now stands. 

Teen Court is honored to be one of only 100 entities across the country selected to host the 9/11 Flag of Honor Across America Memorial Ceremony.
