Each year the City honors the anniversary of the attacks on American soil of Sept. 11, 2001. You are invited to join in the remembrance of those who lost their lives on 9/11, as well as recognize all men and women, from firefighters and police officers to those in the military, who serve and protect our freedom.
The event includes a memorial exhibit in the Council Chambers of the Inverness Government Center, as well as a short evening presentation with a symbolic freedom walk to the historic courthouse and back.
Vehicles and equipment from various law enforcement and emergency response agencies assemble in the city hall parking lot. Past participating agencies include: Citrus County Fire Rescue, Citrus County Sheriff's Office, LifeSouth Community Blood Centers, Coast Guard Auxiliary and Florida Highway Patrol.
The tragedy of September 11, 2001 will be remembered for years to come. As a daily reminder of those who gave their lives, a permanent 9/11 Memorial was erected and dedicated in 2011 in Liberty Park. The memorial can be viewed day or night.
