September 11th Ceremony and Blood Drive

This Saturday, September 11th, marks the 20th anniversary of a somber occasion for our Nation. In partnership with SunCoast Blood Centers, we will be holding a special 9/11 Remembrance Ceremony beginning at 8:20 am, featuring Sarasota Mayor Hagen Brody, at the intersection of State Street and Lemon Avenue. Four bells will be rung, commencing at 8:46 AM, the time that the first plane hit Tower One, to mark each attack. SunCoast will also be collecting blood donations in honor of the occasion, with Donation Buses at both ends of Lemon Avenue. 
Please join us as we come together as a community to honor the victims, first responders, and many heroes who rose to the occasion on that fateful day.
