Sylvan Cemetery will hold its fifth annual Sept. 11 memorial event on Monday, in remembrance of those who lost their lives during the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

In a news release, event organizer Jim Monteton said the half-hour event will begin at 8:15 a.m. As in previous years, the memorial will be held in the gazebo near the center of the cemetery.

Prior events have included attendance from local elected officials and members of the Citrus Heights Police Department, as well as veterans.

Sylvan Cemetery is located at 7401 Auburn Blvd., and is known for holding annual ceremonies each Veterans Day and Memorial Day. The cemetery first began its 9/11 memorial events in 2019.
