Alki’s Statue of Liberty’s 9/11 Event

I just received this email regarding Alki’s Statue of Liberty:

Have just talked with Pamela Green, Director of Community Outreach, Mayor’s Office re: details of our great event on Tuesday, Sept. 11th, for rededication of the newly recast statue to her home of 55 years on Alki.
According to Pamela, here’s some of the happenings:

West Seattle Big Band starts playing at 5:30pm
During the playing of the ‘National Anthem’ a Honor Guard of
     2 Seattle Police Dept. officers
     2 Fire Department officers will present ‘colors’

Mayor Nickels at 6:00 pm
Tom Rasmussen, City Councilman
Unveiling of statue
Fireboat Leschi with water display
Boy Scout Area Director will be rounding up some local Boy Scout Troops to be in attendance.
Plus various Parks Dept., city/county officials

We also have personally invited Fire Station 29 who played such an important role during the memorials on 9/11, and local police officers who also played a big part in the community memorials.

Hope you all can come and join us.

I personally can’t think of a more fitting place to be or thing to do on September 11 if you’re in the Seattle area.
