Lake area first responders will pay tribute to those among their ranks who have died in the line of duty. The annual 9/11 remembrance ceremony is scheduled for Tuesday night at the Osage Beach fire station on Bluff Drive. Osage Beach Fire Chief Jeff Dorhauer says it’s an event that they began discussing three years ago.
This year, another name will be added to that memorial. Miller County Deputy Sheriff Casey Shoemate died in the line of duty earlier this year. His family will be presented with a flag that flew over the memorial. The ceremony is open to the public and is scheduled for Tuesday evening at 6pm.
