In memory of the events that impacted San Bernardino and the nation a year ago, the San Bernardino community and partners will gather to honor, reflect and rebuild. The San Bernardino Mayor’s Office has partnered with California State University, San Bernardino, the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians, San Bernardino Community College District, and others to plan for a gathering of the community for a night of remembrance. These partnerships will allow the community to honor and remember those affected by the December 2nd events.
On December 2, 2016, the community will gather at California State University, San Bernardino’s Coussoulis Arena to reflect on those events. Speakers from religious organizations, law enforcement, federal agencies, and others will have the opportunity to speak on what occurred a year ago, and share their messages with those at the event. The night will include uplifting musical selections from members of the community and will highlight partners that have helped to rebuild and unite San Bernardino.
Mayor R. Carey Davis stated, “I am humbled by the partners that have come together to unite for this event. Our community continues to stand together united in solidarity and support for the victims, survivors, and families of those affected by the December 2nd terrorist attack.”
The Night of Remembrance will air live on the City’s YouTube channel, as well as the local government access channel. The program begins at 6:30 pm and doors open at 5:30 pm. It is open to the public at no cost, and invitations are available in the City Hall lobby and on the Mayor’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/MayorCareyDavis.
