Coming Events in Oriental and in and near Pamlico County

9/11 Moment of Silence

Southeast Pamlico Volunteer Fire Department invites the community to participate in a National Moment of Silence Sunday, Sept. 11, observed in Oriental at Hodges Street, near the town dock.

Fire Station 19 will have their fire trucks near the town dock, draped in mourning bunting. Officers will ring the bell of the old La France fire engine, signaling the passing of the firefighters from that day and the beginning of the national moment of silence, observed at 8:46a. Taps will play after.

A ceremonial flag that flew over the crash site of Flight 93 (and was gifted to SPVFD) will be flown at half-mast at the town dock for the day.

Hodges Street will be briefly closed to traffic for the ceremony.
