Oyster Bay Town Supervisor John Venditto announced that a Towers of Freedom 9/11 Memorial ceremony will take place on Friday, September 11, with the program starting at 8:30 a.m. at the Towers of Freedom 9-11 Military Monument located at John J. Burns Park on Merrick Road in Massapequa. The ceremony will include bells tolling to mark the times of each tower strike on the fateful morning of September 11, 2001.
“Last year, the Town of Oyster Bay dedicated the Towers of Freedom Memorial Plaza to pay tribute to all those who lost their lives on 9-11 and to recognize all branches of the military, NYPD, FDNY, PAPD and other first responders,” Supervisor Venditto said. “It honors those who gave their lives in the war against terrorism in the years that followed 9-11. This ceremony will also serve as a reminder of the sacrifices made every day by the men and women of law enforcement and emergency services to protect our community.” [Read more…]
