HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, NJ - Residents of Hasbrouck Heights remembered the events of 9/11 in a memorial service at the 9/11 Memorial off the circle on the Boulevard and Passaic Street. Hasbrouck Heights Mayor Jack DeLorenzo led the service.
After a greeting from DeLorenzo, Rev. Susan Nelson-Colaneri, the Pastor at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church offered the invocation.
DeLorenzo gave his reflections on the day, and stressed the importance of not only remembering those lost on the day, but the importance of teaching those too young to remember the day, what happened that day. He noted the presence of the Boy Scouts and their leaders, as well as the turn out from the Police Department and Fire fighters.
Rev, Nelson-Colaneri then led those assembled in "Amazing Grace," followed by the Pledge of Allegiance (led by DeLorenzo, and then the singing of the "Star Spangled Banner."
Following the singing of "God Bless America", also led by Nelson-Colaneri, Rev. Patrick Mulewski, Pastor of Corpus Christi Roman Catholic Church delivered the Benediction.
