There’s a lot going on locally in remembrance of the 10th anniversary of the 9-11 terrorist attacks. Here are some of the things that have happened, or are scheduled to happen, that we know of so far:

Earlier this week, Shreveport Fire Chief Craig Mulford unveiled a 480-pound steel beam from the world trade center — at the Shreveport Fire Training Academy. The memorabilia was brought to Shreveport through the support of a local Scottish civic organization overseen by Vernon Love.

At 4:30 this afternoon, the cadets of the Youth Challenge LA National Guard program will plant 3,000 American flags on the vacant seven acres west of First Baptist Church on East Texas Street in Bossier City. Those flags will remain up until next Monday, the 12th.

And Sunday, the Annual Memorial Ceremony takes place at 1:30 p.m. at the Liberty Garden at the Bossier City Municipal Complex. The keynote speaker will be Colonel Janet Deltuva, who was stationed at the Pentagon on September 11th, 2001, when American Airlines Flight 77 crashed into the building. There’s another remembrance ceremony going on Sunday morning at the Barnwell Memorial Garden & Art Center on Clyde Fant Parkway. That one starts at 8:30. At least one lane of traffic on Clyde Fant will be closed just before the ceremony begins, and will re-open shortly after 9 that morning.
