First responders, along with motorcyclists and other supporters, traveled south through Surrey along Highway 99 Sunday morning to mark the 21st anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks in New York City, Washington, DC and rural Pennsylvania.
A gathering was held at the Peace Arch, which included first responders from Bellingham and others.

Peace Arch Park remains closed on the Canadian side while COVID-19 travel restrictions are in place. The federal government is scheduled to re-examine those restrictions later this month.
