Hunterdon County’s 9/11 remembrance ceremony to be held this year on the steps of the county justice center

FELMINGTON, NJ (Hunterdon County) – Members of law enforcement and first responder communities will join county officials at Hunterdon County’s annual 9-11 remembrance ceremony on Sept. 11 at 8:15 a.m. on the steps of the Hunterdon County Justice Center, located at the corner of Court and Park Streets in Flemington, due to construction at the Historic Courthouse, according to Hunterdon County Sheriff Fred W. Brown.

Sheriff Brown, who re-initiated the 9-11 Remembrance event in 2017 and has led the ceremonies in Hunterdon County every year since then, said, “While the Historic Courthouse is under preservation construction it was decided to hold the ceremonies at the Justice Center. The commemoration which remembers all those lost on September 11, 2001, particularly the sixteen Hunterdon County residents who perished that day, is too significant not to be continued.”

“Each year as we honor the memory of those who perished in the attacks of September 11th, 2001; those lost at the World Trade Center, including close to 400 first responders and law enforcement officers, those killed in the Pentagon attack, the heroes on United Airlines flight 93, and those innocent passengers aboard American Airlines Flights 11 and 77, and United Airlines Flight 175 that day. It is vital that they be remembered. It is also essential that we recall the events of 9-11 were terrorist attacks that murdered thousands, by enemies of our nation, of our values, our freedoms, and our way of life. This ceremony takes place to ensure that neither time, nor revisionist history alters those facts” Brown said.
