East Bridgewater Police and Fire Departments to Hold Annual 9/11 Memorial Ceremony
EAST BRIDGEWATER — Police Chief Scott Allen and Fire Chief Timothy Harhen would like to invite the public to attend the annual 9/11 memorial ceremony at the East Bridgewater 9/11 Memorial site.
Wednesday, Sept. 11 at 8:45 a.m.
East Bridgewater Memorial site, 175 Central St.
The East Bridgewater Police and Fire Departments will hold a short memorial service in honor of the victims of 9/11 and in particular, East Bridgewater native and Secret Service Master Officer Craig Miller who died in New York City on Sept. 11, 2001.
The memorial, originally dedicated on Sept. 11, 2016, was built in honor of Officer Miller. It was built through the volunteer efforts of several East Bridgewater residents, including Joel Thomas, Tim Sands, the Kiwanis Club and many others.
Officer Miller’s father and brother will join the community this year before attending the annual 9/11 State House memorial service in Boston.
“This memorial serves as a reminder of the personal connection our community has to that day and we are honored that Officer Miller’s father and brother will be able to join us at the ceremony this year,” Chief Allen said.
“We are proud to host this service each year in honor of Officer Miller and all of the victims of 9/11,” Chief Harhen said. “We encourage everyone to take a few moments on Sept. 11 to remember and honor those who lost their lives that day.”
Any questions about the event can be directed to East Bridgewater Police at 508-378-7223 or East Bridgewater Fire at 508-378-2071.
