Stow Mayor John Pribonic picks up a stone placed between the flags honoring the firefighters killed on 9/11 in the 9/11 Memorial Garden in front of Stow City Hall. Residents may paint rocks in to commemorate 9/11 and add them to the garden. There are also flags honoring the police officers and EMTs who died.
The Stow Arts Commission has asked residents to paint rocks to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks. Rocks may be placed around the perimeter of the 9/11 Memorial Garden amongst the flags representing the first responders who died that day.
Flags honoring the firefighters, police officers and EMTs are placed on the perimeter of Stow's 9/11 Memorial Garden that includes part of a beam from the collapsed World Trade Center, a stone representing the Pentagon and three flagpoles representing the Twin Towers and Shanksville, Pennsylvania.
To mark the 20th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001, Stow Fire Department Chief Mark Stone, left, and Stow Police Department Chief Jeff Film will provide a history of the attacks and lay a memorial wreath during the city's 9/11 Memorial Ceremony.

Stow is commemorating Sept. 11 with a memorial ceremony that will consist of a citywide bell ringing at specifically 8:46 a.m., the time when American Airlines Flight 11 crashed into the North Tower of the Earth Trade Center In New York Town, starting up what would turn into the deadliest terror assault in world record. 

Mike Hart of the Stow Hearth Division will ring a bell 20 moments to mark the 20th anniversary, and nearby church buildings have been asked to do the same.

“We recognize that everyday living usually takes you in diverse instructions, but anywhere you might be at at that time, if you are at home, or at your enterprise, you will listen to the bells, and we hope you stop and replicate,” Mayor John Pribonic explained. 

The ringing of the bells is just one section of the city’s yearly 9/11 Memorial Ceremony, which can take location every single calendar year at the 9/11 Memorial Yard in front of City Corridor.
