Five things for Wednesday, Sept. 11 in and around Old Town Alexandria:
Remembering 9/11 — The City of Alexandria invites the public to a 10 a.m. remembrance ceremony for the 12th anniversary of the events of Sept. 11, 2001. The event will take place in Market Square at 301 King St. The purpose of the commemoration is to give thanks and pay tribute to those who responded on 9/11 without fear, acted without hesitation, and gave their lives to save others. The ceremony will feature remarks from Alexandria Mayor Bill Euille, Alexandria Sheriff Dana Lawhorne, Police Chief Earl Cook and Fire Chief Adam Thiel.
“Caught in the Net” — Catch this new performance from the Little Theatre of Alexandria at 8 p.m. A sequel to 2005 sellout “Run for you Wife!,” this new play follows John Smith, a London taxi driver with two wives in different parts of the city and a tight schedule to keep. Tickets and more information available at the LTA website.
Take a Dip — In case you missed it, Old Town Pool (1609 Cameron St.) is open through Sept. 21 and free to city residents. For more information, see “Old Town Pool Free for City Residents.”
Food Trucks — Interested in learning more about bringing food trucks to town? In the spring, the city tabled a proposal to bring the gourmet and not-so-gourmet vehicles to the streets. A new council-appointed advisory group has been formed to hash out any issues with the plan. It meets for the first time at 7 p.m. at City Hall. The meeting is open to all.
DASH Needs Your Help — Alexandria’s bus system is seeking input and insight from customers to help provide higher quality service and identify future transit needs. The first of two public meetings is a 7 p.m. at Durant Center (1605 Cameron St.). More information on the meetings is posted on this Del Ray Patch announcement.
