9/11 Remembrance Ceremony

Elected officials and members of the police and fire departments were in attendance.
A small service in observance of the12th anniversary of September 11th was held last night at Cooper's Pond. Members of the borough police and fire departments, the Bergenfield High School Band and the VFW Honor Guard were in attendance.The Bergenfield Mayor and Council were also in attendance at the Remembrance Ceremony. Reflections and a benediction were offered during the service.

Our Police Honor Guard presented our nation's colors and were led into the ceremony by Chief Michael Carr playing the bagpipes. Chief Carr performed "Amazing Grace" for those in attendance at the 9/11 memorial site in Cooper's Pond before the ceremony came to a close.

Those lost during the attacks of September 11, 2001 will never be forgotten. We will continue to honor the memory of the 2,997 victims of that day and remember all of the first responders who valiantly ran into the burning buildings as others ran out.
