A September 11th memorial service to commemorate the 12th anniversary of the terrorist attacks will be held at 6:30pm on Wednesday, September 11, 2013 at the FF Paul Tegtmeier Memorial Site, at Hackett Hill Park in Hyde Park.
Candles will be provided. The candlelight vigil will start at 7:00pm.
FF Tegtmeier gave his life responding to the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. He was 41.
Participants are asked to participate in two food drives – “Food Fight for Vets” and “Claudio Cares.” Donations may be left in a firetruck that will be parked at the memorial before the ceremony, with the goal of filling the rig with donated food.
Food Fight for Vets, a project of the Marine Corps League of Dutchess County, helps to stock the Castle Point food pantry. Claudio Cares honors local resident Claudio Coppola, who was killed in a 2012 car accident.
For more details, please call Stephanie at 914-475-1335.
