9/11 Parade of Honor slated for Wednesday

The 9/11 Parade of Honor once again will roll in tribute of those first responders, whether they be law enforcement, fire department or EMS personnel, and military members who have fallen in the line of duty.

According to Libby Lucas, one of the parade organizers, it will “celebrate, honor and remember all those who have fallen in the line of duty, whether on that fateful day Sept. 11, 2001 or at any time during their service. This includes all military, law enforcement, fire, and EMS. It is also to pay tribute and to honor those who risk their lives on a daily basis for their community.”

Parade line-up will begin at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 11 at Hawks Nest State Park. Beginning at 7 p.m., the caravan will proceed to the Veterans Memorial in Ansted where a stop will allow time for a short memorial service honoring Moose Bragg, a longtime Fayette County 911 dispatcher who passed away recently.

After the stop at the memorial, the parade will continue east on Route 60 to its conjunction with Route 19 south. The parade will travel through the towns of Fayetteville, Oak Hill and Mount Hope before circling back to the old Collins Football Field in Oak Hill at approximately 8:30 p.m. where a concluding ceremony is planned.

“We would like for the communities to line their town streets and Route 19 to show their support and appreciation,” Lucas said.

For more information, you may contact her at 304-640-4394.

Also, to better plan for traffic control, it is requested that any first responders interested in being in the parade contact Lucas as soon as possible.
