Senator Golden To Lead Two 9/11 Memorials

From State Senator Marty Golden’s office:

Brooklyn – State Senator Marty Golden (R-C-I, Brooklyn) is announcing his   plans  to  host  two  community  memorials  to  commemorate  the  9th Anniversary  of  the  attacks of September 11, 2001, on Saturday, September 11, 2010.
The  first  memorial  will  take  place  at 6:00 p.m. in Marine Park, entrance  at  Fillmore  Avenue and Marine Parkway and at 8:00 p.m., Senator Golden  will  lead  a  memorial ceremony at the American Veteran’s Memorial Pier,  69th  Street  and  Shore  Road.  The  events  will  both  feature  a candlelight  vigil  and  a  special  patriotic  musical  performance at the conclusion.
“As  we  approach the 9th Anniversary of the attacks of September 11, 2001,  we  remember the tragic events that took the lives of so many of our relatives, our neighbors and our fellow citizens. We can never forget those we  lost  that  fateful  morning,  and  we must continue to stand as strong citizens who survive them and live in the greatest nation in the world, the United States of America,” said Senator Marty Golden.
Golden  continued,  “Over  the  past  nine years, we have always been together as a community at these events, because being together helps us to mourn  and  heal  at  the  same time. We will join together to remember the victims  and pray for them. This year, our ceremonies will be followed by a patriotic  musical  performance  to be offered in the memory of those lost, and to support those who survive them.”
All  are  invited  to  join  with  Senator  Golden  at the memorials. American  Flags and candles will be distributed to those in attendance. For additional  information,  please  contact  Senator  Golden’s  office  (718) 238-6044.
