Sept. 11 remembrance to be held at Arizona Capitol

A remembrance ceremony on the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks will be held Sunday evening outside the State Capitol in Phoenix.

A statement issued by legislative leaders say the event to be held in front of the Old Capitol and between the House and Senate buildings will honor first responders and other American honors.

According to the leaders’ offices, participants will include State Historian Marshall Trimble, representatives of firefighters and police and Bishop Thomas Olmstead of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Phoenix.

Spokesman Matthew Benson says Gov. Jan Brewer will not be at the Sunday evening event but will deliver remarks to a Saturday evening event at a park in Phoenix.
