ROSEMEAD – City of Rosemead celebrated September 11th Remembrance Ceremony in the afternoon of Sept. 11, at Rosemead Civic Center with residents, visitors, city and other nearby civic officials and County of Los Angeles Fire and Sheriff departments participating.
The event started with USA flag hanging from a county fire tall ladder truck as buglers Larry Ballenger, Bailey Chen, Julianne Rose, Bryan Rose, and Mark Riebs played the Star Spangled Banner. It was interesting that the USA flag that had flown up under the fire truck’s ladder up until that time, dropped straight down at attention as the wind stopped during the banner music. As soon as the music stopped the wind blew the flag back up under the ladder even though the flag was weighted.
