Mangano to Host 9/11 Sunset Candlelight and Remembrance Ceremony

East Meadow, NY – With the 13th Anniversary of the September 11, 2001 Attack on America quickly approaching, Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano announced today that the County will honor the memory of those who lost their lives. A Sunset Candlelight and Remembrance Ceremony will take place this Monday, September 8th at 7:00 p.m. at the 9/11 Memorial in Eisenhower Park, near Parking Field 6.

County Executive Mangano stated, “The passage of time does not diminish the tragedy that our nation suffered 13 years ago. As we prepare to observe a national day of remembrance on September 11th, it is imperative that we commemorate this day by reflecting and honoring those we lost that tragic morning and the bravery and heroism shown by first responders and our service men and women who continue to make sacrifices to secure our freedom and safety.”

The Remembrance Ceremony will include the reading of names of Nassau County residents who lost their lives in the attacks and will be read by family members at Nassau County’s 9/11 Memorial in Eisenhower Park. The memorial features two semi-transparent aluminum towers, representing the World Trade Center towers, rising 30 feet from a fountain, and also contains two pieces of steel recovered from the World Trade Center.
