Don’t Miss The 9/11 Remembrance Ceremony In Morris County This Sunday
September 11th, 2001. A day that we’ll never forget. If you were alive, you can vividly remember where you were when you heard the news of the horrible events of that morning.
For those younger folks, they’ve heard the stories and read about the tragic events and I’m sure they were blown away by what a horrific day it was for our country.
With the anniversary of that day approaching, The Morris County Board of County Commissioners invites residents of the county and beyond to join them on Sunday, September 6th at 6 p.m. as they observe the 222nd anniversary of the terrorist attacks.
The ceremony will be held at the Morris County 9/11 Memorial on West Hanover Ave in Parsippany-Troy Hills. There will be a keynote address provided by Nick Degregorio, who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. DeGregorio was just 16 years old and sitting in class while the events of 9/11 unfolded 12 miles away from his classroom in New Jersey.
The events of that day inspired him to enlist in the service after high school and he was deployed four times into combat during his nine years of service. Nearly three thousand lives were lost in the attacks of 9/11. 64 Morris County residents lost that day.
Seating at the Memorial is limited, so the public is encouraged to bring their own chairs to the outdoor observance. You can find parking at the Morris County Department of Human Services building, 340 West Hanover Ave.
Plus, there will be shuttle buses available to transport anyone needing assistance in reaching the short distance to the memorial.
Again, the observance takes place this Sunday at 6 p.m. at the Morris County 9/11 Memorial on West Hanover Ave in Parsippany-Troy Hills.
Regardless of how sad of a day it was, it’s wonderful to come together as a community and never forget those lives lost on that terrible day.
