Richmond Hill 9/11 memorial event held in J.F. Gregory Park

RICHMOND HILL, GA (WTOC) -

Richmond Hill hosted its annual memorial event, the "We Will Never Forget: September 11 Commemoration Ceremony” Friday.

The mayor, police chief, and fire chief spoke at the event, followed by a moment of silence, ringing of bells, and Taps.

The police chief said this day has a special meaning for first responders.

"Our brothers and sisters lost their lives in this tragedy for this nation and we're just here to remember them and to give them respect for what they did, their sacrifices, their families, the losses that were there and the continued fight against terrorism,” said Richmond Hill Police Chief Billy Reynolds.

Friday's ceremony was at the World War II Memorial at J.F. Gregory Park.
