PORT AUTHORITY TO DONATE WORLD TRADE CENTER ARTIFACT TO 9-11 MEMORIAL WALL ON CENTRAL AVE
Release Date: August 11, 2011
The Port Authority advised me that they will donate an artifact from the World Trade Center to the 9-11 memorial wall on Central Ave. The 1711 tiles from artists around the county are in the process of being placed on the wall--and the work should be finished next week by E Irvington resident Frank Pescetti, the mason who has been working very hard on the restoration project. The World Trade Center artifact will make the wall much more meaningful .
JOIN US AT OUR SEPTEMBER 11TH CEREMONY…
The Town of Greenburgh, Rotary Clubs International, ArtsWestchester and Sam’s Clubs request the honor of your presence and participation in a special event, Sunday, September 11, 2011 at 10:00am at Presser Park, Hartsdale honoring the memory of Westchester / Town of Greenburgh residents whose lives were lost on September 11, 2001. The event will also celebrate a national as well as international initiative to save lives of children through Rotary International’s Gift of Life project.
Sunday, September 11, 2011 will mark the tenth year since the attack on the World Trade Towers causing the loss of 3,000 lives, many of whom resided in Westchester County and the Town of Greenburgh. The Town of Greenburgh, in partnership with Rotary International and ArtsWestchester, Inc. generated resources to erect the 9/11 Memorial Wall located on the grounds of Presser Park on Central Avenue, Hartsdale. Two years ago, the Memorial Wall, composed of tiles designed by local school children and residents from throughout the county, began to lose tiles resulting in the need for major repair. Due to a generous donation from Sam’s Club, and the committed, dedicated and tireless efforts of Sarah Bracey White, Arts & Culture Director, Town of Greenburgh, along with a team of volunteers that she coordinated to prepare the tiles for restoration, the 9/11 Memorial Wall is now undergoing reconstruction.
We invite your participation on Sunday, September 11, 2011 and hope that you will be able to join us. If you have questions about the program or thoughts how we can make the 10th anniversary a more meaningful experience, please advise town Clerk Judith Beville by calling her at 993 – 1504 or firstname.lastname@example.org
