MacGregor invites local fire chief to House ceremony honoring 9/11 anniversary

State Rep. Peter MacGregor, R-Rockford, attends the second annual 9/11 ceremony held by the Michigan House of Representatives with Courtland Township Fire Chief Mickey Davis.

The Michigan House of Representatives Tuesday hosted a ceremony honoring first responders and Michigan natives lost in the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. State Rep. Peter MacGregor invited Courtland Township Fire Chief Mickey Davis to the event.

“Sept. 11, 2001 was a tragic day in our nation’s history that we must never forget so we continue to honor those who died and all first responders who continue to fight for our safety,” said MacGregor, R-Rockford. “It was my honor to have Chief Davis with me on the House floor for this special ceremony. I greatly appreciate his sacrifices and the sacrifices of all first responders putting their lives on the line to protect us.”

Following the presentation of the colors by a Michigan State Police Honor Guard, the names of fallen military members and first responders were read and honored. The ceremony is an annual event in the Michigan House.
