Riverton Remembers September 11Riverton residents and neighbors are invited to come together this September to remember the fateful events that took place on September 11, 2001. 

America was targeted for attack because we're the brightest beacon for freedom and opportunity in the world. And no one will keep that light from shining. Today, our nation saw evil -- the very worst of human nature -- and we responded with the best of America.
- President George W. Bush
