The mayor of the Village of Sardinia, Greg Cassidy  wants to invite all of Brown County to a special event recognizing and remembering the terrorist attack on American soil on 9-11-2001.
The village will hold a “Sardinia Remembers” day on Saturday, Sept. 10 at the Veteran’s Park beginning at 4 p.m. and closing at dark, according to Mayor Cassidy.
“I believe that this event will become an annual event that should be recognized and remembered every year,” Mayor Cassidy said. “When I look around at our young people and how they see the world, I see that most of them have no grasp of what life was like before 9/11. They have no idea how our way of life has changed, and I believe they have a right to know and we as Americans should never forget.
“The Tuesday morning  of September 11, 2001 was the day the word Al-Qaeda become more than just an answer to a crossword puzzle. Until that day we had no clue who they were.”
Cassidy said that in the past 15 years terrorism has evolved to now include many crazy individual acts of terrorism.
The Sept. 10 event, ‘Sardinia Remembers’ will include entertainment by several local bands and groups as well as an old fashioned cook-out at the fire department. People are encouraged to bring their grills, their family and their friends to the park, for a day of remembering 9/11.
Guest speakers during the day will include American veteran and Brown County Probate/Juvenile Court Judge Danny Bubp, Sardinia Chief of Police Jim Lewis, Fire Chief Tommy Kirker and from the Mt. Orab Bible Baptist Church, Rev. Ted House.
Everyone is invited to attend this ‘Sardinia Remembers’ event.
