BIXBY, Okla. — Today marks 18 years since the 9/11 terrorist attacks on U.S. soil.

To remember and honor the more than 3,000 lives lost, the local chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution will be holding the annual Patriot Day remembrance ceremony in Bixby.

The ceremony will take place at Washington Irving Park by a steel beam from the World Trade Center that was put in place a year after the attacks.

It starts at 9 a.m. and will include a presentation of the flag, silent prayer, ringing of the bells and the Bixby High School color guard. They will also have speakers sharing their experience of the attacks.

Those who attend will receive small American flags and a bookmark of The American's Creed.
