UPDATE 9/10/2014 at 4:29 PM: In the event of inclement weather on Thursday, September 11, 6:00 pm, the 9-11 Remembrance Ceremony will move to the Salem County Vo-Tech School Gymnasium.

Salem – Deputy Freeholder Director Dale Cross and the Salem County Freeholder Board call upon Salem County residents to attend the 9/11 Memorial Commemoration to mark the 13th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks as we honor and remember those who lost their lives and the lives of those who were impacted by the horrific attacks.

The event will take place on Thursday, September 11, 2014 at 6pm at the Park of Remembrance located at the Emergency Services Center, adjacent to the county correctional facility, 135 Cemetery in Pilesgrove Twp.
Freeholder Deputy Director Dale Cross stated, “it is important that we continue to host our Remembrance Ceremony to honor the thousands of men, women, and children who lost their lives, as well as their families. To recognize our military personnel who have served and are currently serving to protect our great nation, as well as, an opportunity to thank our many local First Responders for their dedication and service to protect our communities.”

Freeholder Director, Julie Acton, “The Freeholder Board is honored to support this important event as it serves as a reminder of the impact that day had on our country and how our communities united together to support one another.”
Freeholder Bob Vanderslice, Chair of the Dept. of Health and Human Services, stated “September is National Emergency Preparedness Month and there is no better example of why having a plan is a necessity. National Preparedness Month encourages our businesses and families to prepare for and respond to emergencies, including natural disasters and potential terrorist attacks.”
The Park Remembrance was designed by our Fire Academy Director, Mr. Leroy Pierce. As Deputy Freeholder Director stated, “Leroy’s vision for this memorial park is providing all of us here in Salem County with a daily reminder to take nothing for granted. Appreciate our freedoms. Count our blessings. Strive to help our fellow man. And cherish our friends and families.”
