The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders would like to invite the community to honor the memory of the 60 Union County residents who perished in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 to a ceremony at the Union County September 11th Memorial on Wednesday, September 11, 2013 from 6:00pm to 9:00pm at Echo Lake Park in Mountainside.
An Honor Guard will present the colors and there will be a candlelighting ceremony in memory of those murdered in the attacks.
The Union County memorial features two beams from the World Trade Center arranged within a five sided area representing the Pentagon and those aboard Flight 77, and an eternal flame representing those who fought back against the terrorists on Flight 93. The flame also honors members of the Armed Services and emergency responders.
In addition to these elements, the names of the 60 deceased Union County residents are etched into the memorial.
