Always Remember

We can’t change the events of 9/11, but we can join together in remembrance and in service to our community.

In Cary, volunteers will gather on Sept. 11 and 12 to build raised vegetable gardens at Fire Station 5 on High House Road and Fire Station 4 on Old Apex Road, to benefit local firefighters.  

In Garner, a 9/11 commemoration will be held on Friday, at First Baptist Church, featuring a free breakfast at 7 a.m., keynote speaker Bill Hart, and emcee Rachel Chavez, the 2015 Miss Garner.
