The Cody VFW will hold a Patriot’s Day Remembrance Ceremony at 9 a.m. Saturday in front of the VFW.

Larry and Alice Munari will sing the National Anthem. Speakers include Mayor Matt Hall, VFW Post Commander Jim Bobbitt and VFW Auxiliary President Sandy Pedersen.

Also Saturday morning in Cheyenne, Gov. Mark Gordon will join the Wyoming Veterans Commission on behalf of the Wyoming Military Department and other state and local agencies to hold a wreath-laying ceremony this Saturday, on the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. The event will honor the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks that took the lives of 2,997 men, women and children.

“Twenty years after that devastating day that every American who was alive that day remembers, we witnessed the American People’s resolve and the best of our spirit even in a time of tragedy,” Gordon said.
