The Kaua‘i Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (Kaua‘i RSVP), sponsored by the County of Kaua‘i Agency on Elderly Affairs, invites the public to attend a special event on Friday, Sept. 9, to honor the heroes and sacrifices made on Sept. 11, 2001.

The 9/11 Day of Service “Together We Stand 9/11” event will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Kukui Grove Center, in Līhu‘e.

The event will feature a program including special performances and messages from various officials, and a recognition ceremony honoring representatives from Kaua‘i’s first responders. Attendees will be able to visit 35 exhibit and resource tables from numerous community organizations throughout the mall, explore volunteer opportunities, register to win prizes and enjoy entertainment by Ho‘ola and Limited Edition, Kaua‘i Band.

“This year marks 21 years since September 11, 2001. We continue to honor the sacrifices made that day by remembering the heroes, armed forces, first responders, the countless others’ acts of service to defend our nation’s freedom,” said Kealoha Takahashi, Executive on Aging. “The community is encouraged to honor, serve, and unite by engaging in service on this day and going forward.”
