KALAMAZOO, MI (WKZO) -- The tenth anniversary of the 9-11 terrorist attacks will be  remembered in New York, Washington and Shanksville,  and a lot of towns in America are planning their own events.  Kalamazoo is no exception.   

Every year since 9-11, the Catholic Diocese in Kalamazoo has held a blue mass on a Sunday in September, to honor the first responders who gave their lives trying to rescue the trapped in the twin towers, and to salute those doing the job in the local community.  Bishop Paul Bradley says they will hold this year’s blue mass on Sunday too.     It gets underway at 11:30 Sunday  morning at St. Augustine Cathedral.

Portage Mayor Pete Strazdas says they have organized an event in collaboration with several churches in the community to hold a commemoration at the Overlander Bandshell from 1 to 3PM

The City of Kalamazoo will host its own commemoration in Bronson Park that afternoon.  Former Sheriff and Retired National Guard General Tom Edmonds will be the featured speaker. It will begin at 4pm at the Rotary stage.
