ANNAPOLIS, Md. — In Anne Arundel County, they took action to help the community while they remember the victims of 9/11.

Normally 9/11 ceremonies are somber with some reflection but in Annapolis they decided to go outside and take action.

The Governor's Office of Community Initiatives used today to kick off their month long program, a Day to Serve. They want state workers and all Marylander's to participate in community volunteer projects. Here at Quiet Waters, state employees were helping to clean up the park.

This group of state workers are removing weeds and vines along the pathways at the park.

"I really love the outdoors and to me every plant, every tree you see is living and it brings memories of those who have already past."

It's not just today you can be a part of this, Governor Hogan has declared September 11 to October 10 as Day to Serve month. The governor encourages people to volunteer for a project in their community where they live.
