The City of Lakewood will solemnly commemorate Patriot Day with a flag-lowering ceremony beginning at 6:30 p.m. on Sept. 11 in the west parking lot at Lakewood City Hall. 

The 30-minute ceremony will include the presentation of the colors, remarks from Mayor Ariel Pe, musical performances, and a moment of silence.

At the conclusion of the event, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department trumpet players will play Taps as our nation’s flag is lowered for the night.

Since first gathering two weeks after the horrific events of Sept. 11, 2001, Lakewood residents have come together annually to remember the victims of the terrorist attacks and pay tribute to the U.S. military personnel and public safety first responders who protect and serve us at home and abroad.

We hope that you will take part in the 22nd anniversary commemoration of Patriot Day.
