Posted August 31, 2018 in Community Alert by Andrea Litchfield

Join First Responders upon sacred grounds for a moment of remembrance and reflection this month as our country observes the 17th anniversary of the 9/11 attack.

The Hilliard Division of Police and Norwich Township Fire Department will partner once again to host the City’s annual 9/11 Memorial Ceremony. The event will take place at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2018 at First Responders Park.

Located in the center of Old Hilliard at the corner of Center and Main streets, First Responders Park is local monument built for a national impact. The park contains original artifacts from sites in New York City including a portion of subway rail and twisted beams of steel from ground zero.

The park is meant to be a place to remember, to visit, and to mourn as well as to be a public show of appreciation for all those who give their lives to protect those in their community.

The ceremony will include remarks by Hilliard Chief of Police Robert Fisher and Norwich Fire Chief Jeff Warren, as well as the singing of the National Anthem and the playing of “Taps” on the bagpipe.

The event is free and open to the public.
