Work Underway to Refurbish Hamilton's 9/11 Memorial in Veteran's Park

In remembrance of the upcoming 20th anniversary of September 11th, the Hamilton Township Department of Public Works and Sean’s Landscaping are working together to update the 9-11 Memorial Grove which is located at the North Entrance of Veteran’s Park.

 

Sean’s Landscaping has generously offered to donate and install granite pavers to enhance the memorial and our Public Works crew have been hard at work preparing the area for the project.

 

Once the project is completed, we hope you will visit the memorial to pay homage to our heroes, to those we lost, to the first responders who answered the call that day and in the days to follow, and to ensure we never forget the tragic events that occurred on that day.

Reminder: Township to Commemorate Lives Lost to COVID-19 Tomorrow April 1st

This time last year we began to face an unknown fight against the coronavirus, and now, a year later we know much more than we did in the beginning, and we continue to rage a war together against COVID-19. Today, March 31st marks the one year anniversary on which the first Hamiltonian succumbed to the coronavirus. Just in Hamilton, we have faced over 6,000 positive cases and lost 217 lives to this awful virus.

 

To honor those Hamilton residents we have lost to COVID-19, we will have a display of luminaries in front of the Hamilton Township Public Library (1 Justice Samuel A. Alito, Jr. Way Hamilton, NJ 08619) on the evening of Thursday, April 1st. All are invited to stop by for a moment of reflection and pay homage to those we have lost.
