As North Carolinians remember the terror attacks of September 11, 2001, services across the state honor the nearly 3,000 lives lost that day. From 110 story stair climbs, to road races, and solemn church service, the day has come to mean not just mourning, but also a resurgence of national pride and public service. This Sunday, people from all communities gather to honor the flag, celebrate first-responders and military service members, and reach out to lend an hand in their communities. 8:30am, Romare Bearden Park, Charlotte (bells tolling at 8:46, 9:03, 9:37, 9:59, 10:03, 10:28)8:30am until 10:30am, Cornelius- Lemley Fire Station 1, Cornelius6pm, Day of Service Evening Commemoration, Red Hat Amphitheater, Raleigh8:30am, Patriot Day Ceremony, LeJeune Memorial Gardens, Jacksonville 3pm, Memorial Service, Northside Presbyterian Church, Burlington 6pm, Fairfield Harbour Community Center & Firehouse, New Bern2pm, Day of Service, Cary Fire Station #3, 1807 Kildaire Farm Roadnoon, Remembrance Ceremony, Lake Louise Park, Weaverville 5pm, Tunnel to Towers Foundation 5k , Research Triangle Park
