MORRIS COUNTY, NJ- At approximately 6 p.m., Morris County’s annual 9/11-memorial service will take place at the Morris County September 11th Memorial on West Hanover Avenue in Parsippany-Troy Hills.

After 15 years, the Morris County Board of Freeholders continues to insist that individuals remember and honor all 2,977 people who were murdered by 19 hijackers in the worst terror attack our nation has ever seen. Among those killed were Antonio Augusto Rocha of East Hanover, Captain Robert Edward Dolan of Florham Park and Simon Maddison, also of Florham Park.

“It is vitally important to gather each year on the anniversary of 9/11 to recall every single one of the nearly 3,000 people who were tragically lost to us on that day, including 64 of our Morris County residents,” said Freeholder Director Kathy DeFillippo. “Their families and friends should know that the lives of their loved ones will never be forgotten. So, we ask all elected officials and county residents to join us on 9/11.”

Attendees will watch police, fire, rescue and emergency personnel from all over the county march up West Hanover Avenue to the Memorial. Additionally, a special invocation, a lighting of candles, a reading of the names of each of the Morris County victims and a 21-gun salute will all be included.

This year, several individuals will be speaking. New Jersey Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno will be the keynote speaker, while Parsippany residents Vincent and Loretta Viglione will also address the audience. The couple will speak in remembrance of Loretta’s brother, New York City Firefighter Tommy Sabella, who was a part of Ladder Company 13 at the World Trade Center.  

Due to limited seating, the public is allowed to bring lawn chairs to the outdoor ceremony. Parking will be available at the Morris County Department of Human Services building, which is located at 340 West Hanover Ave., in Morris Township. Shuttle buses will be on hand to transport individuals to the memorial.
