On Saturday, Sept. 11 at 7:30 p.m. Ballston Spa holds its Annual 9/11 Remembrance Ceremony. 
20 years ago, life in our country changed. Even in the quaint village of Ballston Spa, we had a new perspective on life. To remember those who we lost, the community of Ballston Spa came together to created its own 9/11 Memorial Garden, next door to Village Hall. The Memorial, complete with a section of the subway track that ran under the Twin Towers, is a treasured part of the Ballston Spa community. 
This year’s ceremony is very special. The 20th Anniversary marks an important milestone for all Americans. To honor those who died in the attack and those who gave their lives trying to save others, Ballston Spa is planning a special ceremony. 
The program will include music by the Union Fire Company Band, a dramatic light display and art banners, presentations by elected officials and a special candlelight ceremony. The event will be attended by the McBoston Fire Truck flying their massive American Flag and members of the local Fire Companies, Police and Ambulance Corp. Everyone is welcome to attend this personal small town event. Bring a chair. We will be following CDC guidelines. Rain date Sunday Sept. 12.
