There are several Sept. 11 memorial events planned in Spokane Valley on Sunday, the 10th anniversary of the attacks. The first is at 6:40 a.m. at the Spokane Valley Fire Department administration building (next to Station 8) at 2110 N. Wilbur Road. During the ceremony a piece of steel beam from the Towers will be installed in the building, which is under construction.

In the afternoon Valley Fire will be among those participating in a memorial ceremony at the Spokane Interstate Fair at 1:30 p.m. A procession will begin at the main gate and head into the grandstand area for the ceremony. You will have to pay to get into the Fair at Broadway and Havana but there won't be a charge to get into the grandstand for the event.

If you are looking for a more spiritual event, four Valley churches will host a memorial service at 4 p.m. Sunday at Zion Lutheran Church, 8304 E. Buckeye. The pastors of Millwood Presbyterian Church, New Hope Bible Church and St. Mary's Catholic Church will help lead the service.
