September 11 Memorial Service

Saturday, September 11, 2021

Honor Guard will perform a ceremony to honor the memory of the 343 firefighters who lost their lives during 9/11. Three hundred forty-three flags will be set up within the area as a memorial for the lost lives. A table will be set up with four empty chairs to symbolize those who have fallen in the line of duty. Neighbors are welcome to attend. The ceremony and site are intended to serve as a reminder of the lives lost and a place of quiet reflection. We ask that visitors help reinforce the spirit of solidarity and compassion as we pay tribute to our lost heroes.
