SEPTEMBER 11TH REMEMBRANCE CEREMONIES

9/11/01 - We Wil lNever ForgetOn Tuesday morning, September 11, 2001, terrorists attacked America in a series of despicable acts of war. They hijacked four passenger jets, crashed two of them into the World Trade Center's twin towers and a third into the Headquarters of the U.S. Department of Defense at the Pentagon, causing great loss of life and tremendous damage. The fourth plane crashed in the Pennsylvania countryside, killing all on board but falling well short of its intended target apparently because of the heroic efforts of passengers on board.

This carnage, which caused the collapse of both Trade Center towers and the destruction of part of the Pentagon, killed more than 250 airplane passengers and thousands more on the ground. Hunterdon County lost 16 citizens.

It was indeed a very sad day that none of us can ever forget and we continue to mourn with those who have suffered such great and disastrous loss.

Every year Hunterdon County holds a Rememberance Day Ceremony at the Historic Hunterdon County Courthouse. These ceremonies which are led by Hunterdon County Sheriff Fred Brown; the Board of Chosen Freeholders and other County and Local officials and residents, to honor those that we lost as well as the emergency service personnel who responded on that fateful day and the many weeks that followed.
