EDISON, NJ – Edison Township officials concerned about the impending inclement weather for Thursday evening decided to move the 9/11 Remembrance ceremony indoors rather than hold it outside at Papaianni Park’s 9/11 Memorial Fountain, as was originally planned.

Mayor Thomas Lankey, the Township Council and the Recreation Department invite community residents to Edison’s annual 9/11 remembrance ceremony at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 11 in the Township Council chamber.

Speakers will include Mayor Lankey, State Sen. Peter J. Barnes III, Freeholder Charles Tomaro, Assembly members Patrick Diegnan and Nancy Pinkin. Rabbi Dr. Israel Rivkin of Congregration Ohr Torah will conduct the invocation and Chaplain Shari R. Reiss will say the benediction. The Edison Police and Fire Honor Guards, bag pipers and vocalists will set the tone for this reflective occasion.

“Our community is proud to honor the memory those who lost their lives in the senseless 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and on United Flight 93,” Lankey said. “We must always also remember the brave men and women who have sacrificed their lives in America’s War on Terror in the years since 9/11.”

The Township Council chamber is located within the Edison Municipal Complex at 100 Municipal Boulevard in Edison.

For further information, contact the Edison Recreation Department from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays at (732) 248-7312.
