Florida: ‘Standing With Our Fallen’ 9/11 Ceremony at Sarasota National Cemetery

adopt a fallenOn Sunday, September 11th, 2016 at the Patriot Plaza amphitheater of the Sarasota National Cemetery, thousands will gather to “Stand With Our 9/11 Fallen” at 6:00 p.m EST.

The Sarasota National Cemetery is located at 9810 State Rd 72, Florida 34241.

This event is unique in that this is the 15th anniversary of 9/11 and it allows those who attend the opportunity to adopt a person who died on that day via an Adopt A Fallen website. Those who attend will read the name of the person they have chosen to adopt during the ceremony.

In an email Rev. Dr. Tom Pfaff, President, Sarasota Ministerial Association asks:

Consider being listed in the 9/11 Fifteen Year Commemoration program among the “Organizations Standing With Our Fallen,” by choosing  to do two things.

ONE: Invite the members and friends of your congregation/organization to ADOPT A FALLEN for the Commemoration by going to the following link, http://bit.ly/29R65gP.

TWO: Invite the members and friends of your congregation/organization to check out the various volunteer opportunities, such as Ushers and Choir, for the Commemoration by going to the following link, http://bit.ly/2a61F60.

All 2,977 names of our Fallen are listed alphabetically, so opening the ADOPT A FALLEN link completely, showing all the names, will take a minute or two. The volunteer link opens slowly at first too.

Organizations may go to http://bit.ly/2a61F60 to join other organizations who are “Standing With Our Fallen.”
