Remembering 9-11

Remembering 9-11

Posted on September 12, 2018

Two ‘open house’ hours of observance with volunteers available to answer questions were held Tuesday, September 11th at 8:45 AM and again at 6 PM at the 9-11 Monument near the Upper Parking Area, Montgomery Veterans Park, Harlingen Road. More photos below.

(L to R): Montgomery Township Committee member Ed Trzaska, Somerset County Freeholder Mark Caliguire, and Mayor Christine Madrid take a moment to remember the tragic and heroic events of 9-11-01, while MVMC member Don Matthews and NYC Transit Police Officer/Ground Zero Eyewitness Eric Bulger look on.

These times were set up to foster remembrance and quiet reflection on the tragic events of the day as well as the bravery displayed by those who responded to the attack.  This is also a time to foster awareness when those who do not remember that day can learn about the occurrence and how it impacted specific lives, their loved ones, and indeed, all of America. The event was organized by Mike Maloney and the Montgomery Veterans Memorial Committee. The recently improved 9-11 Memorial site (materials donated courtesy of Heroscaping Program of E.P. Henry Landscaping Supply, labor by Landscape Marshall) is open daily during park hours to any respectful visitors.
