The Chapin Town Council unanimously passed a proclamation at its August council meeting to designate Sunday, September 11, 2016, as “A Day to Remember,” in memory of those who lost their lives during the most horrific terrorist act in U.S. history. This year marks the 15th anniversary of the 9-11 attacks on New York City, Washington, D.C. and a downed plane in a Pennsylvania field. The proclamation encourages residents of Chapin to remind others that “the deaths of these people will always be remembered and they will be forever loved.” It also suggests “the promotion of global peace and goodwill, a demonstration of America’s resolve and perseverance to win the war on terrorism, the advancement of responsible citizenship, the encouragement of patriotism and love of country, and the poignant remembrance of those innocent victims who died September 11, as heroes, one and all.”Members of the American Legion Post 193 will be participating in a ceremony being held Sunday, September 11, 2016, at Pine Island in Irmo along with other legion posts, beginning at noon. Mayor Skip Wilson will be in attendance and present a copy of the Town’s proclamation as part of the program.
