Residents can join members of the Vineland Fire, Police, and Emergency Medical Services, elected officials, and invited guests as the city honors and remembers the lives lost during the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks in New York City, Washington, D.C., and Shanksville, Pa.
Congress designated Sept. 11 of each year as "Patriot Day” by a joint resolution on Dec. 18, 2001. They further designated the day as a "National Day of Service and Remembrance" on April 21, 2009. As such, Americans are encouraged to participate in community service in honor of those the Nation lost, and to observe this day with appropriate ceremonies and activities to honor the innocent victims who perished.
For more information call (856) 794-4000, ext. 4203 or (609) 805-4728.
Additionally, the city of Millville, as it has always done since the attack of terrorism on Sept. 11, 2001, will remember the victims with a ceremony “Never, Will The American People Forget.”
The ceremony is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. Saturday, at Millville’s Riverfront Park at Buck & Main streets.
The ceremony will feature a reading of the names of firefighters, EMS and police personnel who gave their lives. A piece of beam from the towers will be on display, courtesy of the Millville Army Airfield Museum. Also there will be photos of 9/11 on display from the Charles Manning Collection.
