Participants made up of citizen volunteers from the Task Force, supporters from the community and construction industry, first and second responders, family members of 9/11 victims, and public officials will gather in the Croton Landing parking area of the River Walk at 2:30 p.m. Led by a color guard from the local volunteer fire departments they will walk in procession along the half-mile pathway north to the site on the Hudson River. A van from the Village of Croton will be in the parking area to transport those who need a ride to the site.
Janet Mainiero of Croton, project director of the BCC 9/11 Remembrance Memorial, will open the ceremony with a remembrance for the family members and special thanks to all those who have contributed their time and talents to the all-volunteer, not-for-profit project. She will recognize the 16 active members of the Task Force from Cortlandt, Croton and Buchanan who have been dedicated in their efforts during the past two years; the construction team of seven companies who offered their vigorous work at the site as “in-kind” donations during the past two months; a support team of seven local businesses and first responders; and the Supervisor, Mayors and staff from the Town of Cortlandt, and Villages of Croton & Buchanan.
The unique Memorial is entitled Reaching Through The Shadow. A detailed description and rendering art will be forwarded upon request in advance or available on Sept. 11th.
