GRANVILLE, W.Va. – The Town of Granvillle held a 9/11 parade Saturday morning to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the attacks on September 11, 2001.

The parade started with the Granville Fire Department coming up with the idea before getting Granville Police on board.

Over 40 emergency vehicles from all across Monongalia County, Marion County and Pennsylvania made up most of the parade, with a few elected officials participating as well.

The support was large in response to it and we’re happy that everyone showed up and showed their Patriotism today,” said Patricia Lewis, Mayor of Granville.
