September 11, 2020 - 6:00pm

Bellevue’s annual 9/11 Memorial Ceremony, which honors fallen and wounded warriors, members of the military, first responders, and new citizens, will again take place at American Heroes Park at 6:00 pm on Friday, Sept. 11. The Kiwanis Club of Bellevue sponsors the ceremony.

The park is located on the north side of Mission Ave. across from Haworth Park (just before the toll bridge). We will observe social distancing criteria with groups limited to 8 people per Health and Human Services guidance. As a result, there will be no bleacher seating provided. Masks are strongly encouraged.

The main part of the ceremony, and the reason we hold the event, is the Roll Call of our Fallen Heroes from Nebraska and Western Iowa with cadets from Bellevue’s Jr ROTC units honoring each fallen warrior with a military salute as members of VFW Post 10785 read the names, branch of service, and home town. It is our commitment that each of their names will always be spoken so that there memory lives in us and challenges us to live our lives to the highest standards.
