Almost 3000 people died that day, including over 400 first responders. This Sunday, we honor those we lost at a Westfield Sept 11th Commemoration Ceremony.

Mayor Andrew Skibitsky invites the public to join him at the Westfield Sept 11th Commemoration Ceremony. The ceremony begins with a welcome from the Mayor. Next, everyone gathered will say the Pledge of Allegiance. Then, prayers of commemoration will be offered up. Several community leaders plan to say a few words. Special guests play Taps while members of the community place a wreath on-site. Finally, a moment of silent reflection finishes out the ceremony.
The Westfield Sept 11th Commemoration Ceremony will last a short time. However, the memorial site itself will be open all day. The public is welcome to drop by and pay their respects at any time throughout the day. If you have never seen the Westfield Sept 11th Memorial, prepare to be moved. A central glass spire contains the names of every victim of 9/11 etched on it. Twelve granite pillars stand erect nearby. These represent the twelve local Westfield people we lost as part of the events that day.
Honor the memory of those lives lost 15 years ago. Come to the Westfield Sept 11th Commemoration Ceremony on Sunday. The service takes place come rain or shine. We must never forget.
