The Montana Hate Free Zone and the Bozeman Public Library will sponsor a 9/11 remembrance program on Thursday, Sept. 11.

The program will be at noon on the lawn of the Bozeman Public Library. It will be moved inside in the case of inclement weather. The community is invited to participate in this free event. Everyone is asked to bring a candle. Children can draw a picture of candles to bring. During the program, unlit candles will be lifted as a symbol of remembrance. Those who died on September 11, 2001 will be remembered, along with first responders who risked their lives to save others. The one hour event will feature readings, poetry and music.

Featured speakers are: Fire Chief Jason Shrauger, Assistant Police Chief Rich McLane, MSU Professor Dr. Franke Wilmer, Shawn Sheppard (Vet.), Rev. Denise Rogers, and Rev. Danielle Rogers. The families who lost loved ones on September 11 are asking everyone to participate in an act of service to the community. This year, our community is being asked to donate to the Food Bank.
