California 9/11 Memorial
September 11 @ 8:30 am - 9:30 am
An event every year that begins at 8:30 am on day 11 of September, repeating indefinitely
The California 9|11 Memorial was established for a simple, yet profound, purpose: To Never Forget.
The California 9-11 Memorial, located in Clovis, CA was built by Pelco and spearheaded by CEO David McDonald, as a permanent monument to honor and remember the 2,977 people killed during the most horrific terrorist attack in history. The site of the memorial was dedicated to the California 9-11 Memorial to ensure that the legacy started by David McDonald, and the promise to never forget, be realized for generations to come.
Every year at the memorial site, a group of committed citizens, first responders and military personnel perform a ceremony steeped in service traditions for the victims of September 11th. Honoring the brave spirit of those who sacrificed their lives to save others. This commemoration ceremony and dedicated monument is the largest of its kind outside of New York City.
The California 9-11 Memorial is proud to partner with the Fresno County Superintendent of Schools to promote and establish the One Voice event, a musical event which brings together students from local junior high and high schools as well as community members to sing in one unifying voice in honor of the brave. We are committed to engage all participating public safety agencies, community organizations and school district to promote community participation and remembrance.
The California 9-11 Memorial was officially established in 2019 and has applied for exemption as a 501 (c) 3 non-profit benefit organization.
The California 9-11 Memorial was organized to continue recognizing and honoring the civilians who were killed along with the fallen fire personnel, peace officers and military personnel and all first responders who died in the line of duty while attempting to preserve and save human lives during the tragic events that occurred on September 11, 2001
To become a real force in educating our community and our children of the lives lost and the selfless act of sacrifice, bravery and courage shown by those that were lost in service to others on September 11th.
WE WILL NEVER FORGET
