September 11 Memorial Services Planned Across Mercer, Bucks & Burlington Counties
Next week will mark 18 years since the attacks of September 11 changed our nation forever.
We've collected a local list of events where you will be able to reflect on the tragic events of September 11, 2001:
Hamilton Township's 9/11 Remembrance Ceremony
Hamilton Township will mark the anniversary of September 11th with its annual remembrance ceremony at noon on Wednesday, September 11, 2019.
It will take place at the September 11 Memorial Grove inside the Klockner Road Entrance of Veterans Park.
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 wreath will be placed at the Memorial Grove as soon as weather permits.
Pennsylvania's Garden of Reflection
Located in Bucks County, the Garden of Reflection is the official Pennsylvania memorial to the September 11 attacks. The Garden of Reflection will be open all day to allow reflection.
On September 11th they will host a morning remembrance ceremony (at 8:30 am) that will mark the chronological events with music and prayer. Additionally, they will hold a candlelight vigil in the evening (at 7 pm).
Mercer County Community College's Ceremony
Mercer County Community College (MCCC) and the County of Mercer will host a ceremony at 11 am today on their West Windsor campus (adjacent to the Student Center in the quad). In the event of inclement weather, it will be held in the Student Center.
A special tribute will be paid to the 30 Mercer County residents who died in the attacks.
Rowan College at Burlington County’s 9/11 Memorial Service
The college community will join together in Burlington County to remember the victims of the September 11 attacks at 12:30 pm today.
