Middlefield Pack 3141 Conducts 9/11 Remembrance

posted Sep 6, 2018, 7:31 AM by Middlefield Pack

Seventeen years after the terror attacks on America, citizens of Middlefield will come together in a commemoration ceremony to honor the victims of Sept. 11, 2001. The commemoration ceremony honors the victims of the attacks on the World Trade Center, Pentagon, airline flight takeovers and the American military service personnel who have died in the war against terrorism while other members of the service continue to fight. 

Boy Scouts of America all across America are energizing their communities to ensure that the innocent victims will never be forgotten. “We must not forget all of those who gave their lives for this great country,” cub master, Monique Hornsby said. “Everyone in Middlefield is invited to join together in this uniting ceremony.” 

Church bells should be heard ringing at the exact times the incidents of Sept. 11 took place. The ceremony will begin with recognition of those who gave their lives and end with the placement of a ceremonial wreath to commemorate past war fighters and first responders who are now deceased. 

“This ceremony will not only honor those who have died, but also those who live and continue to fight for the freedom of this great nation,” Hornsby said. “As a nation united, we must remain committed to supporting the men and women of our armed forces as they serve with honor and courage, and we must always believe in our first responders because they are the thin line that separate us from disaster.” 

The ceremony will take place at 9:15 a.m. on Sept. 11 at the flagpole in front of Cardinal Intermediate School, across from the Post Office on Route 87 (Kinsman Road).
