MAYOR'S SECOND ANNUAL REMEMBRANCE WALK

SLATED FOR SEPTEMBER 9

 

Mayor Mufi Hannemann will lead the second annual Mayor's Remembrance Walk on Sunday, September 9, in observance of the sixth anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks on America.

 

Mayor Hannemann said, "The City is again holding this walk to honor the memory of the people who perished in the 9/11 attacks and to recognize the first-responders and members of the armed forces who are protecting our safety and well-being.  This is an occasion for Honolulu to remember the losses we suffered and the acts of heroism summoned the day of the attacks."

 

The public is invited to participate in the walk, which includes brief ceremonies and wreath presentations at the Honolulu Police Department headquarters and Honolulu Fire Department headquarters, a moment of silence at the Prince Kuhio Federal Building, and the formal program at Honolulu Hale.

 

            Participants should gather by 6:30 p.m. on the front steps of the Honolulu Police Department headquarters, at 801 South Beretania Street.  The marchers will proceed makai on Alapai and South streets to the Honolulu Fire Department headquarters on the corner of South and Queen streets.  The procession moves on Halekauwila Street to the Prince Kuhio Federal Building at the corner of Halekauwila and Punchbowl streets, then mauka on Punchbowl to Honolulu Hale.

 

            The formal program at Honolulu Hale will take place at the eternal flame on the front lawn.  The service will include a wreath-laying and recognition of the Honolulu Emergency Services Department and Department of Emergency Management.  There will be music by the Royal Hawaiian Band and a display of emergency vehicles from the police, fire, and emergency services departments.  Michael W. Perry of KSSK will serve as master of ceremonies.

 

            Participants are encouraged to bring flashlights.  Free parking will be available at the Frank F. Fasi Civic Center parking structure (enter from Alapai or Beretania streets).
