Daughters of the American Revolution, España Chapter: "Patriot´s Day -- September 11th -- is the moment to get together for a remembrance ceremony 17 years after the 9/11 attacks. But as the Day falls on a Tuesday it is more practical for all those who could accompany us to meet on Sunday the 16th. As in previous years, we will meet at the Parque Juan Carlos I - at the site where the American Embassy planted 10 red oaks brought from the US on the 10th anniversary of the attack on the Twin Towers."
