Santa Barbara County to Mark 9/11 Anniversary with ‘A Day of Remembrance’

Public service at Courthouse Sunken Garden will honor those who died in the attacks a decade ago

As the nation remembers those who died in the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Santa Barbara will hold a special memorial ceremony, “A Day of Remembrance,” from 10 to 11 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 11 at the Santa Barbara County Courthouse Sunken Garden, 1100 Anacapa St.

The event will honor the first responders and the 3,000-plus civilian lives lost that day, along with the military members who have perished fighting the terrorism behind the attacks.

The ceremony will include an honor guard presentation, a civilian account of the terrorist attacks, bagpipes and other musical tributes, and a moment of silent reflection.

As a show of unity among first responders in Santa Barbara County, many agencies are participating in this special event and the public is encouraged to participate. This event will bring together law enforcement, firefighters, medical professionals, the military and our community at large.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
