This Friday is Patriot Day, a day when America remembers those lost in the 9/11/2001 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City, the Pentagon in Virginia, as well as those who died in the hijacking of United Airlines Flight 93 that crashed in Pennsylvania. In Big Spring, Texas, this is a day that is also used to honor local fallen heroes, both military and first responders.
On Friday, Sept. 11, 2020, Scenic Mountain Medical Center will host their annual Prayer at the Pole event that invites the public to join them for a morning prayer that honors first responders and military heroes in remembrance. This will begin at 8 AM at their SMMC Flag Pole.
Bagpipes will be played by Albert Cavazos. Prayer will be led by Pastor Samuel Segundo. Continental Breakfast will be available, compliments of The Yellow Rose Cafe.
Later that day, the 14th annual 9/11 Memorial Service will be held at Spring Creek Fellowship, inside of the Spring Town Plaza, in Big Spirng at 6 PM. It is sponsored by the O’Neal-Kunkle Disabled American Veterans Chapter 47 & the Howard County Volunteer Fire Department.
The public is invited to join the DAV Chapter 47 and the HCVFD in remembering those lost in the 9/11 attacks and honoring our own local fallen heroes and first responders.
If you’re unable to attend, check out our Facebook Live stream on our KBest Media Facebook page, sponsored by the Guardians Of the Children Wildcat Chapter of Big Spring, the American Legion Post 506, Los Intocables Motorcycle Club, and the Cossacks Motorcycle Club.
