Marking the 14th anniversary of a day that forever changed our lives, Mayor Reggie Spinello will host a special public ceremony on Friday, Sept. 11 at 8:30 a.m. at Glen Cove’s 9/11 Memorial in Pratt Park, 10 Glen Cove Ave. Joining the mayor will be representatives of the Glen Cove Police Department, Fire Department, Auxiliary Police, Harbor Patrol, Glen Cove Chamber of Commerce along with distinguished guests, singers, local veterans and residents.
The program will take pause to remember those who tragically lost their lives on that fateful day, recognize the heroic acts of early responders and everyday people and remind us how the Glen Cove community came together to support its own.
“So many of us have vivid memories of that mid-September day that still are fresh in our minds and in our hearts,” said Spinello. “For the 2,997 people, including four Glen Cove residents, who tragically lost their lives on 9/11, we stand united in our commitment to remember them with honor, dignity and an obligation to protect our freedoms in their memory. For the Glen Cove community, we will never forget Edward J. Lehman, Matthew T. McDermott, John F. Puckett and Joseph J. Zuccala.”
