This past Saturday I was able to attend the unveiling of an addition to the Town of Rowley’s 9/11 memorial. A 14” by 15” piece of a structural beam used to support one of the World Trade Center towers was donated by the New York City Fire Department to enhance the town’s existing memorial. Posted below are a few photos of Saturday’s event.
This morning, I was also able to speak at the City of Gloucester’s Remembrance Ceremony organized by the Gloucester Police and Fire Departments. It was a moving event and I was honored to have had been able to witness it. Photos of that event are also posted below.
