Hamilton to Hold September 11th Remembrance Ceremony

Hamilton Township will mark the 15th anniversary of September 11th with its annual remembrance ceremony on Sunday, September 11, 2016 at 12:00 PM (Noon) at the September 11th Memorial Grove inside the Klockner Road Entrance ofVeterans Park.

The ceremony will include the participation of Hamilton Township Mayor Kelly Yaede, Hamilton Township Police, Fire and First Responder personnel, the Hamilton Township Patriotic Committee, Pastor Lance Walker of Faith Baptist Church, and the Steinert High School Select Choir, under the direction of Mr. Richard Schneider.

Additionally, the ceremony will include a display of photographs entitled “Before and After 9/11” by photographer Stanley Brick for attendees to view before and after the program.

“It is hard to believe that we are 15 years removed from September 11, 2001; however the citizens of our community and our nation will never forget the tragedy of that day,” says Mayor Kelly Yaede.  “I invite our community to join us as we remember those we lost, their surviving families, as well as our dedicated first responders.”   

Hamilton’s September 11th Memorial Grove area holds a Steel Beam from the World Trade Center, as well as Fire Fighter and Police monuments and a memorial to the Hamilton residents we lost on September 11, 2001 (William Reed Bethke, Daniel Leonard Maher, Susan L. Schuler and Jeannine Damiani-Jones).

Due to anticipated crowds and limited seating capacity, attendees are encouraged to arrive early or to bring lawn chairs.

In the event that inclement weather on September 11th causes the formal ceremony to be canceled, a Memorial Wreath will be placed at the Memorial Grove as soon as weather permits.
