Rio Rancho Mayor Gregg Hull set the tone for the 9.11.2001 memorial Sunday at Vista Verde Memorial Park.

A solemn, emotional day, he remembered where he was when it happened, then read the city’s proclamation to never forget.

A crowd of around 50 attended the event — including firefighters, police and some Rio Rancho residents.

The bell tolled for the fallen firefighters.
