9.11 National Day of Service September 8 Fontana Community Senior Center

The 2nd Annual 9/11 National Day of Service Co-Sponsorship event was a great tribute to the lives which were lost on this tragic day. The Veterans

Partnering with Communities and the City of Fontana collaborated on the event. The event saluted those firefighters who tragically died while responding to duty as well as nearly 3,000 other persons who perished during the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack. The ringing of the bell was part of the ceremony, signifying that a firefighter has come home for the final time. The ceremony also paid tribute to the memory of Victor Garcia, who died July 1, 2007 while participating in Operation Iraqi freedom. A Gold Star banner will be displayed in his memory around downtown Fontana. Over 300 community members participated in the National Day of Service tribute to the 9.11 tragedy in 2001, by surpassing teir goal by over 500 more care packages. The inspiring tradition of engaging in charitable service on 9.11 as an annual and forward-looking tribute to 9.11 victims, survivors, and those who rose up in service in response of the attacks - Fontana will truly never forget
