Weehawken Township to Host 9/11 Remembrance & Unity Ceremony on 22nd Anniversary

WEEHAWKEN, NJ – The Township of Weehawken has announced a Remembrance & Unity Ceremony to mark the 22nd anniversary of the September 11th attacks. The event is scheduled to take place on Monday, September 11th, at 6:00 pm. The ceremony will be held at Weehawken’s 9/11 Memorial, located at the foot of Pershing Road. The primary focus of the gathering is to honor and remember the lives lost on that day, including the five Weehawken residents.

The ceremony will not only serve as a moment of reflection on the tragic events of September 11, 2001, but also as a testament to the efforts of the Weehawken community in its aftermath. Historical records indicate that Weehawken Police, North Hudson Regional Firefighters, and Weehawken EMS played a crucial role in assisting the evacuation of over 70,000 individuals from New York City.

The event will see the participation of several key figures from the township, including Mayor Richard F. Turner, Township Manager Giovanni D. Ahmad, Councilman at Large Robert J. Sosa, and Third Ward Councilman David J. Curtis. The township extends an open invitation to all residents and neighboring communities to join in this poignant ceremony, reflecting on the events of September 11th and paying tribute to the enduring spirit of unity and resilience.
