Taking place on Elberton’s Downtown Square later today will be a special ceremony to honor and remember those who lost their lives twelve years ago today.
The ceremony is a joint presentation by the Elbert Theatre, MainStreet Elberton, and the Elbert County Chamber of Commerce.
Elbert Theatre Director Toni King says the ceremony will last roughly a half an hour, but she says that a lot takes place in that short time frame.
“We have people come sing patriotic songs, we will have the ECMS chorus come sing a few songs, and we also have a few guest speakers who will speak during the ceremony as well”, said King.
The ceremony begins at 12:30pm on the square; all members of the Elbert County community are encouraged to attend.
