Fayetteville firefighters will lead a march followed by a brief ceremony Sunday morning in commemoration of the the 10-year anniversary of the September 11 attacks.

All city leaders, employees and members of the public are invited to join members of the Fayetteville Fire Department at 7:45 a.m. in a walk from Station 1, 303 W. Center St., to the Town Center plaza on the downtown square.

At 8:03 a.m., the time when the second plane struck the South Tower of the World Trade Center, a bell will be rung to honor the firefighters of the New York City Fire Department who died after responding to the terrorist attack 10 years ago.

Mayor Lioneld Jordan will read a proclamation declaring a moment of remembrance for the 2,974 who died during the attack.
