“In honor of the 9/11 15th Anniversary, a united Carson pays homage to our American heroes. We have designed a program on this day to remember, celebrate, and believe “We Are One”, said City of Carson Mayor Albert Robles.
Various non-profit community organizations will also take part during the event by hosting informational booths to provide information to the public about the services they provide.
As in past years, the City hosts a 9/11 event to pay tribute to the heroism of police and fire personnel during multiple tragedies that took place on September 11, 2001, and to honor the memories of those who lost their lives in the attacks.
