On Sunday, Sept. 11, the Town of North Hempstead will host a September 11th Memorial Service at 8:15 a.m. at Manhasset Valley Park, located on East Shore Road and Northern Blvd. All are welcomed to the ceremony.
“As we prepare to observe the 21st Anniversary of these tragic attacks on America, it is important that we commemorate this day as the passage of time does not diminish the tragedy that our nation suffered,” North Hempstead Supervisor Jennifer DeSena stated. “Fifty-six North Hempstead residents lost their lives in the attacks, so it is especially significant that we come together as a community each year to honor their memory. Please join us as we remember these loved ones and the brave heroism of our first responders who answered the call that day.”
“We will gather in somber reflection and commemoration of those lost in the tragic events of September 11th. On this 21st Anniversary, may we continue to heal and rededicate ourselves to peace throughout the world,” said Town Clerk Ragini Srivastava.
Last year, commemorating the 20th anniversary of the devastating attacks, the Town unveiled a monument that features a 19-foot-long steel beam from the World Trade Center.
For information, call the Office of the Town Clerk at 516-869-7610.
