Various entities are commemorating the 18th anniversary 9/11 terrorist attacks with memorials and ceremonies. In Sandy Harbor, Stephanie Langseth concluded the community's 9/11 memorial ceremony this morning with the reading of a poem about the infamous day. This was the third year of the tradition in Sandy Harbor. A prayer was recited, the memorial bell – made from metal from the towers – was rung at 7:46 a.m. the moment the first airplane struck one of the Twin Towers. Marble Falls Rotarians are hosting an "Day of Remembrance" event at 5:30 p.m. today at Lakeside Pavilion to commemorate the attacks and to honor local first responders.
