On Sept. 11, the Town of North Hempstead will host a 9/11 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.
“The ceremony serves to provide all who endured the tragedy of Sept. 11 an opportunity to reflect upon its impact and remember those we lost that day,” Town Clerk Wayne Wink said. “It is also a day to acknowledge remarkable acts of heroism by countless first responders who risked their own lives to save others and the passengers on Flight 93 who saved untold numbers of lives by rebelling against their hijackers.”
This marks the 20th anniversary of the devastating Sept. 11 attacks, and the town will be honoring the victims, their families, and our first responders by unveiling a monument that features a 19-foot-long beam from the World Trade Center.
“This year, the town has the distinct honor and privilege of commemorating the 56 North Hempstead residents who lost their lives on Sept. 11 by unveiling a permanent memorial in their memory,” Town of North Hempstead Supervisor Judi Bosworth said. “It is our hope that this memorial will give the victims’ families a sense of solace knowing that the names will be indelibly etched at Manhasset Valley Park.”
For any questions, call the Office of the Town Clerk at 516-869-7610.
