HRM Plans Low-Key Ceremony for September 11th

(Monday, September 9/2002)-- Halifax Regional Municipality will pay special recognition to the 18 emergency shelters that provided food and accommodation last September 11th to the more than 8,000 passengers/crews on flights diverted to Halifax last year as a result of the terrorist attacks on the United States.

Mayor Peter Kelly and Members of Halifax Regional Council have scheduled a low-key event to be held in Halifax Hall, City Hall, this coming Wednesday (September 11th), beginning at 3 p.m. The media is invited to attend.

Commemorative plaques will be presented to representatives of the emergency shelters, who were able to accommodate the stranded travellers from September 11th to September 15th last year.

In addition, flags at all HRM buildings and facilities will be lowered to half-mast at 9:46 a.m. on Wednesday, September 11th and remain so until sunset that day.
