Mesquite, TX – Sept. 6, 2022 - The City of Mesquite invites the public to attend a 9/11 Memorial Ceremony at Mesquite Freedom Park, 1527 N. Galloway Ave. The event will be held at 2 p.m. on Sept. 11. The program will include The Mesquite Police and Fire Honor Guards and Mesquite Fire Department Pipe and Drum Core.
In 2011, the City of Mesquite acquired rights to a 15-foot, 575-pound steel beam recovered from one of the Twin Towers through the World Trade Center Artifact Program and became only the third city in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area to participate in the program. This twisted beam is the centerpiece of Mesquite Freedom Park. The park offers an opportunity for the public to touch a piece of world history and to remember the significance of 9/11 as well as other attacks on our country’s freedoms.
