The American Legion Family of Art Semro Post and Auxiliary Unit 28 will hold a Patriot Day ceremony on Sept. 11 at noon in front of the Grant County Courthouse in Ephrata.
On the 17th anniversary of 9/11, the ceremony will celebrate and remember first responders and members of the armed forces and the sacrifices they make in the course of duty. The day was designated “Patriot Day” by the U.S. Congress Dec. 18, 2001.
A portion of the ceremony will also be dedicated to bringing attention to prisoners of war and those missing in action.
Members of the public, whether veteran or civilian, are encouraged to attend.
