BRIDGEWATER, NJ - Bridgewater Township remembered those lost in the 9/11 attacks with a special ceremony and wreath-laying Sunday at its memorial outside the municipal building.

Mayor Dan Hayes recognized the younger volunteer emergency responders who were not even born when the attacks occurred and spoke about the importance of remembering the tragedy.

Before the wreath was placed at the memorial, the township recognized its own six residents who were lost in the attacks: Evan Jay Baron, Noel J. Foster, Thomas H. Polhemus, Ronald G. Tartaro, Lance R. Tumulty and Alison M. Wildman.
