Our local heroes will be honored across the Coast today on this, the 18th anniversary of 9/11.
One of those events will be at the Scarlet Pearl Casino in D’iberville, where they’re rolling out the red carpet for the city’s first responders.
The 9/11 tribute is set to start at the Scarlet Pearl’s casino hotel lobby with a short tribute to D’iberville’s police and firemen and their chiefs: police Chief Wayne Payne, and fire Chief Gerald Smith.
After the ceremony, all of the city’s policemen and fire fighters will be treated to a free meal with Scarlet Pearl Casino executives at the waterfront buffet.
Casino leaders say this is just one way they would like to honor the city’s local first responders as they pay tribute and remember the events of 9/11.
