From the Coral Springs City Commission:
It’s already September 2021, which officially marks the end of the summer season. This month we are excited to come together as a community to celebrate, honor, and remember what America stands for unity, diversity, and hard work.
On Monday, September 6, we recognize the hard work and contributions of laborers across our country as we celebrate Labor Day. The value of hard-working Americans is unmeasurable, and so on this day, we honor, thank, and appreciate every hard-working individual who helps to make Coral Springs the best city in which to live, work and raise a family. City Hall and City Hall in the Mall will be closed in observance.
As we reach the 20th Anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks on our nation, the city will commemorate the occasion with a variety of events. On this very difficult day, we will come together in service and remembrance. Join us at 3 p.m. in front of the 9/11 Monument located in front of the Northwest Regional Library as we lay wreaths in memory of the victims. Residents and their families are invited to pay their respects at the monument throughout the September 11th weekend. In addition, the Sea of Flags will be on display at the Great Lawn of City Hall for residents to visit. For more events visit, www.coralsprings.org/events.
In Coral Springs, we celebrate diversity and inclusion. In honor of National Hispanic Heritage Month, the city’s popular Bites-N-Sips returns to the Artwalk (9405 N.W. 31st Court) on Friday, September 24, 2021, at 5:30 p.m. and will celebrate Hispanic culture with food and entertainment! The event is free, food and beverages will be available for purchase. Parking is free at the City Hall parking garage.
We are excited to launch our inaugural Hometown Heroes Banner program to honor military veterans and active-duty service members from Coral Springs. Indexing banners will be hung along University Drive, from Royal Palm Boulevard to Ramblewood Drive, featuring the faces of city veterans and service members, along with the branch of the military they served on a quarterly basis. This program, the Veteran Recognition program, and ceremonies to honor Memorial Day and Veterans Day are the many ways we pay tribute to our local veterans.
