Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino announced that the Town will honor a Remembrance Ceremony for the victims of the September 11, 2001 Attacks on America on Thursday, September 6th, beginning at 7 p.m. at TOBAY Beach. The Town Board invites all residents, families and friends to attend.
“As we prepare to observe the 17th Anniversary of these tragic attacks on America, it is important that we commemorate this day as the passage of time does not diminish the tragedy that our nation suffered,” Supervisor Saladino stated. “Together, we will pay tribute to those we lost that tragic morning as well as those who continue to pass away from 9/11 related illness. Join us in remembering these loved ones and honoring the brave heroism demonstrated by first responders who participated in rescue and recovery efforts.”
The Town’s 9/11 Memorial is inscribed with the names of residents lost on September 11, 2001. The Memorial features a steel beam recovered from the World Trade Center. The September 6th ceremony includes a candlelight vigil, vocal performances, bagpipe music and religious readings. In addition, the names of those lost, who are inscribed on the wall, will be read.
