This coming Sunday people worldwide will mark the Tenth Anniversary of one of the most horrific events in our Nation's history.
In Troy we will mark the anniversary by unveiling and dedicating the Troy September 11th Memorial and conducting a memorial service.
When we began to plan this memorial, just nine months ago, our purpose was clear. To construct a monument to honor the innocent lives tragically lost and to honor the response of our local Troy and Rensselaer County emergency response crews, which included the Troy Police and Fire Departments and the 42nd Infantry located in Troy.
We would like everyone to join with us on Sunday September 11th at Noon for the ceremony.
It has been an honor to be involved with this project and I am humbled by the positive response and support it has received. We are confident everyone will be pleased with the outcome.
Below is a copy of the invitation and program of events for Sunday. Also, please bring your own lawn chair, there will be no seating available. Thank you.
