ELIZABETH-Tomorrow will mark the sixteenth anniversary of the attacks. Two of the planes were flown into the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, a third plane hit the Pentagon just outside Washington, D.C., and the fourth plane crashed in a field in Pennsylvania.
Six Elizabeth residents were lost that day, Arcelia Castillo, Carlos Da Costa, Colleen Fraser, Margaret Lewis, Frankie Serrano, and Anthony Tempesta.
Mayor J. Christian Bollwage will be in attendance at the Elizabeth September 11 Remembrance Ceremony and all are invited to attend. The ceremony will take place at the Midtown Pedestrian Plaza, next to the Midtown Train Station. The event is scheduled at 8:45 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. at the Elizabeth September 11 Memorial.
Community members are also invited to honor the memory of the 60 Union County residents who perished in the attacks on September 11, 2001. The Union County September 11 Memorial is located at Echo Lake Park in Mountainside.
