On Friday, Sept. 9, 2022, San Marcos Fire Department hosted their annual flag raising ceremony to remember the events of Sept. 11, 2001. At this public, flag raising ceremony, the San Marcos Fire Department Honor Guard raised the flag that flew over City Hall on September 11, 2021.  The poem “The Tolling of the Bell” was read followed by the ringing of the historical fire bell and a moment of silent reflection. Lastly, the public was invited to place flowers at a flower memorial, which stays up all day Friday (until around 4:30) for anyone that would like to stop by and add a flower. The flag will fly over City Hall over the weekend. 

This event was held at City Hall, Friday, September 9th at 8:40am.
