Communities across the state marked the memorial with events Sunday. In Lansing, firefighters and police officers marched thru downtown. Their destination-- a ceremony to remember the more than 400 public servants who died in rescue efforts on 9-11.
That was also the mission of Lansing Township firefighters with a display at Eastwood Towne Center Sunday afternoon. They set up trucks, photographs, and even a piece of one of the twin towers to bring attention to the day.
Mason turned their remembrance into an act of appreciation. Volunteers cleaned fire trucks and police cars to thank their officers. Their event--called Mason Cares--was their fourth annual 9-11 memorial.
