Events remember 9/11 attacks

The unveiling of a new 9/11 memorial at Midway Fire and Rescue is one of several special events taking place this weekend to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the 2001 terrorist attacks.

The centerpiece of the memorial is part of a steel beam from the World Trade Center. The ceremony starts at 2 p.m. at Midway’s headquarters in Litchfield.

Speakers include Midway Assistant Chief James Crawford and Firefighter Troy Hutchinson, who responded to the attack at the Pentagon; former New York City Police Sgt. Mike Fanning; and Angie Shoemaker, who worked in the World Trade Center.

Dead Dog Saloon in Murrells Inlet will have its 10th annual 9/11 Benefit on Sunday, featuring free food and live music. Doors open at 10 a.m. and music starts at 11. Formal ceremonies start at 1 p.m.

Proceeds go to Horry/Georgetown Counties Fire and Life Safety Expo and the Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office “Shop with Santa” program for children.

A remembrance service at Holy Cross-Faith Memorial Church starts at 8:46 a.m. Sunday, the time the first plane hit the World Trade Center. The service will focus on the “shared emotional history of 9/11” and will include a reading of the names of those who died in the attacks. The reading is expected to take about an hour.

Precious Blood of Christ Catholic Church will have a 9/11 liturgy at 10:30 a.m. Current and former public safety workers and military are invited to join.
