The annual ceremony, hosted by the Marysville Fire District, will begin with an invocation by Greg Kanehen, pastor of the Marysville Free Methodist Church, and words of tribute from Mayor Jon Nehring, followed by the Honor Guard presenting the colors, the ringing of the bell and, at 8:48 a.m., the playing of "Taps" in honor of the first responders who perished in the World Trade Center attacks, as well as Marysville Fire Lt. Jeff Thornton, who lost his life to cancer on that same day.
