Ten years after the horrific attacks on U.S. soil, the memory of those who perished lives on. Keep Blanco Beautiful erected the Liberty Garden Bench Memorial in 2002 so that the citizens of Blanco would have a place to remember all of those lost that day.
“To the victims and heroes of September 11, 2001,” reads the plaque embedded in the bench. “Your valiant sacrifice will forever be an inspiration to our hearts.”
KBB invites you to visit the bench, which is permanently located in the garden area of Bindseil Park, next to City Hall. On this anniversary, spend some time remembering the victims and their families, and please leave a flag at the bench in their memory.
Cry Out America Prayer Rally
In commemoration of the 10 year anniversary of the attacks, a “Cry Out America 2011” event will be held on the east lawn of the Old Blanco County Courthouse on Sunday, September 11, at 5pm.
