“It is important to gather at the county memorial each year on the anniversary of 9/11 to recall every single one of the nearly 3,000 innocent people who were tragically lost to our nation that day, including 64 of our Morris County residents,’’ said Morris County Freeholder Director Doug Cabana. “We want their families and friends to know their loved ones are not forgotten,’’ he added.

“As a society, we have an obligation to remember what happened on that tragic day, to recall the lives lost and the long-lasting impact on the families and our nation as a result of these terrorist attacks,’’ added Deputy Morris County Freeholder Director John Cesaro. “With that pain comes lessons learned, which we can never forget,’’ he said. 

Freeholder Christine Myers said, "This is a solemn day, one which I can not stop thinking of.  We lost so many great friends, colleagues and relatives throughout Morris County.  We will never forget them or what their lives stood for".

The county’s 9/11 event will include a march with a color guard up West Hanover Avenue to the Memorial by police, fire, rescue and emergency personnel from across Morris County.  The observance will also include a special invocation, a lighting of candles, and reading of the names of each of the Morris County victims, plus a 21-gun salute, and keynote remarks.

Morris County’s September 11th Memorial pays tribute to all of those who died in the terrorist attacks in New York, Pennsylvania and Washington D.C., on Sept. 11, 2001, with a special emphasis on the 64 victims from Morris County whose names are etched in plaques affixed to the Memorial. The names of all of the nearly 3,000 people who died that day are engraved in ruby-colored paving stones that have been set in the ground as a walkway surrounding the Memorial.

Since seating at the Memorial is limited, the public is encouraged to bring lawn chairs to the outdoor observance. Parking will be available at the Morris County Department of Human Services building at 340 West Hanover Ave., in Morris Township – directly across from the Academy. Shuttle buses will be available to transport those in need the short distance to the Memorial.

The Morris County Board of Chosen Freeholders also invite police and fire departments and rescue squads from across the county to participate by sending one apparatus per department and assembling at 4:45 p.m. at the Morris County Public Safety Academy, 500 West Hanover Ave., in Parsippany-Troy Hills.  From there, a procession will be held to the Sept. 11th Memorial.
