UNION, NJ – The community is invited to participate in a September 11 Remembrance Ceremony on Monday, Sept. 11, beginning at 8:15 a.m. at Union Fire Headquarters on Bond Drive.

“Marking the anniversary of this tragic event provides the opportunity to recognize the many instances of heroism, bravery and generosity which have reflected back so strongly on America since that day more than 15 years ago,” said Township of Union Mayor Suzette Cavadas.  

The intent of this remembrance by the Union Fire Department is to participate in and conduct a single nationwide salute to fallen firefighters, law enforcement and civilians alike.

The event will be coordinated to occur at the exact moment the World Trade Center events occurred and will be marked by a series of two bell chimes -- one for each of the towers whose collapse took countless lives, followed by the reading of the names of the service members whose lives were lost that day.

For additional Information, contact the Township of Union Office of Public Information at 908-851-5096 or via email at publicinfo@uniontownship.com.
