Senator Robert W. Singer, Senator Sean T. Keane and Assemblyman David P. Rible will join Lakewood Mayor Menashe Miller and the Lakewood Township Committee in recognizing the 10th
anniversary of September 11, 2001.

Township officials will hold a 9/11 memorial observance, part of the national Moment of Remembrance, beginning at 12:45 p.m. in the auditorium of the Lakewood Township Municipal Building, Third Street, Lakewood, to coincide with the national moment of silence at 1:00 p.m. proposed by a resolution of Senator Frank R. Lautenberg and the U.S. Senate.

Senators Singer and Keane along with Assemblyman Rible will light memorial candles. Mayor Miller, a Major in the Air Force, says the observance in Lakewood will also include an invocation, the national anthem, a prayer for our current emergency volunteers, a one minute moment of silence at 1:00 p.m., a video presentation, and a benediction.

Mayor Miller,  is asking that anyone who is a survivor of the 9/11 tragedy or who has a relative who perished to contact his office 732-364-2500 Ext. 5200 with their names and phone numbers so that the township can pay proper respect and present those individuals with a township proclamation.

Mayor Miller says, “Our country will never forget what happened on September 11, 2001 – where we were and what we were doing. We will always remember the heroic service, actions, and sacrifices of our first responders, law enforcement personnel, state and local officials, volunteers, and countless others who helped innocent victims.  We will always honor the armed forces, homeland security and law enforcement personnel, and their families who are continuing to protect us ever since.  We will work tirelessly to defend the freedom and security of our great nation.”
