ENGLEWOOD MAYOR MICHAEL J. WILDES INVITES YOU

TO THE SEVENTH ANNIVERSARY MEMORIAL SERVICE IN HONOR OF 9/11

TO BE HELD AT ENGLEWOOD PUBLIC LIBRARY

31 ENGLE STREET

ON SEPTEMBER 7, 2008 AT 9:00 AM.

Mayor Wildes will honor the Englewood residents who lost their lives during the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Englewood emergency service personnel who responded to Ground Zero seven years ago.

A special guest, Bernard B. Kerik, will join Englewood at the memorial service.  The 40th Police Commissioner of the City of New York experienced the tragedy of September 11, 2001 and responded by innovative and creative management and oversight to the rescue and recovery work on the investigation of the tragic events at the World Trade Center.

 

Kerik (served as Iraq's interim Minister of Interior and Senior Policy Advisor) earned more than 100 awards for his service, and received a metal of Valor and a Presidential Commendation for Heroism, from President Ronald Reagan. Today he deals with national security issues, focusing on the threat of international terrorism which we face here in the United States.

Kerik, will join City Council members, Fire, Police and Englewood Volunteer Ambulance Corps officials, Library Board of Trustees officials, local clergy, members of the victims' families and Englewood residents at this special event. Bagpipes/Taps/Fire Bell will be heard.

Join us in remembrance at the tragic moment when airplanes struck the World Trade Towers as we re-dedicate ourselves to the memories of our fallen friends and fellow citizens who are no longer with us.
