Hamilton to Hold September 11th Remembrance Ceremony


Hamilton Township will hold its annual September 11th remembrance ceremony on Friday, September 11, 2015 at 12:00 PM (Noon) at the September 11th Memorial Grove inside the Klockner Road Entrance of Veterans Park. 

The ceremony will include the participation of Hamilton Township Mayor Kelly Yaede, Hamilton Township Police, Fire and First Responder personnel, the Hamilton Township Patriotic Committee, Rev. Ian Hill of St. Mark’s Lutheran Church, the Hamilton Township Police and Fire Honor Guards, the Hamilton Township Fire Department Pipe & Drum Band and the Steinert High School Select Choir, under the direction of Mr. Richard Schneider.  

“Hamilton Township and our entire nation will never forget the events of September 11th. Our annual remembrance ceremony continues to solemnly recognize those we lost on September 11th, to comfort their surviving families and loved ones, and to honor the continuing contributions of our first responders, such as our Police Officers, Firefighters, Emergency Medical Responders and Emergency Management personnel,” says Mayor Kelly Yaede.  “I invite our community to join us for our annual remembrance ceremony or to visit our beautiful September 11th Memorial Grove in Veterans Park.”   

Hamilton’s September 11th Memorial Grove area holds a Steel Beam from the World Trade Center, as well as a Fire Fighter monument and a memorial to the Hamilton residents we lost on September 11, 2001 (William Reed Bethke, Daniel Leonard Maher, Susan L. Schuler and Jeannine Damiani-Jones).

Due to anticipated crowds and limited seating capacity, attendees are encouraged to arrive early or to bring lawn chairs.    

In the event that inclement weather on September 11th causes the formal ceremony to be cancelled, a Memorial Wreath will be placed at the Memorial Grove as soon as weather permits.
