The terrorist attacks that happened September 11th, 2001 haven’t been forgotten and officials at the International Peace Garden (IPG) continue to hold a memorial ceremony every year.
In 2001, 19 militants hijacked four airplanes and carried out suicide attacks against targets in the United States.
Since 2002 the IPG has held an annual program at a memorial site which is located at the peace Garden south of Boissevain. That site has steel girders from the World Trade Centre.
The International Peace Garden will hold a 9/11 Memorial Event on Sunday, Sept. 11 at 11 a.m. The event is free and open to the public. Attendees are encouraged to arrive by 10:30 a.m. and take seats by 10:45 a.m. for the 11 a.m. ceremony.
The event will be held at the 9/11 Memorial Site which was established in 2002, through the work of the IPG board, the North Dakota and Manitoba governments and Rotary clubs in both countries.
