In 2009, Congress designated Sept. 11 as a National Day of Service and Remembrance. With the 12th anniversary of the 9/11 this week, the Starkville community will honor local first responders throughout the week with numerous activities.

Volunteer Starkville and the Maroon Volunteer Centered at Mississippi State University have participated in the day since 2011. The two organizations have coordinated many events throughout the week where Starkville residents can get involved, beginning with Serving Those Who Serve Us from 3:30-5 p.m on Tuesday.
