BRIDGEWATER — Fire Chief Michael MacDermott and Police Chief Christopher D. Delmonte would like to invite the community to attend the departments’ 9/11 remembrance ceremony this weekend.
Saturday, Sept. 11 at 8:30 a.m.
In front of the Academy Building, 66 Central Square
The Bridgewater Police and Fire Departments will host a remembrance ceremony in honor of the victims of 9/11.
A moment of silence will be observed at 8:46 a.m. at the time hijackers deliberately crashed American Airlines Flight 11 into floors 93 through 99 of the World Trade Center’s North Tower. The moment of silence will honor the 2,977 lives lost in New York, Pennsylvania and at the Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001.
“Sept. 11, 2001 impacted so many families and communities, and it’s important that we never forget the sacrifices that were made by first responders, the lives that were lost and the families that were left behind,” Chief Delmonte said. “We hope that the community will join us this weekend to honor their memories.”
Added Chief MacDermott, “It is hard to believe that 20 years has passed since that day when so many lives were taken and so many others were forever changed. Remembrance ceremonies are an important way for us to ensure that the impact of that day and what was lost is never forgotten.”
