A 9/11 remembrance event will be held in Barnesville Sunday, the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks.

It’s evolved into a public forum to thank local firefighters, police officers, emergency medical technicians and the brave men and women who lost their lives or are serving in the war against terrorism.’ There will be a flagpole dedication and the posting of colors by the Barnesville police department and Lamar County sheriff’s office color guards.
