Laguna Remembers 9/11 at Monument Point


The Laguna Beach Fire and Police Departments conducted a remembrance and service ceremony to honor those who lost their lives on Sept. 11, 2001. The memorial was held at Monument Point in Heisler Park around ‘Semper Memento,’ a 2011 sculpture constructed by Laguna Beach artist Jorg Dubin using beams from the World Trade Center in New York City.
