BACKGROUND:
In 2017, the Township Board of Directors approved the addition of two special events to recognize, remember and honor the events of September 11: Patriot Day of Remembrance at Central Fire Station and First Responder's Day to be held at Town Green Park. In addition,a proclamation has been developed for each occasion to be adopted and read aloud at each event (Attachment A).

In the United States, September 11th is designated as Patriot Day in memory of those who died in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. By a joint resolution approved December 18, 2001 (Public Law 107-89), Congress has designated September 11 of each year as "Patriot Day," and by Public Law 111-13, approved April 21, 2009, the Congress has requested the observance of September 11 as an annually recognized "National Day of Service and Remembrance."
 
The Township will be holding two events on September 11 to recognize those lost in the attacks on September 11 and to recognize The Woodlands Township’s First Responders. 
  • Patriot Day of Remembrance
