The City of New Rochelle’s Official 9/11 Commemorative Service & Candlelight Vigil, sponsored by The United Veterans Memorial & Patriotic Association of New Rochelle, and Habitat for Humanity of Westchester, will be hosted this Thursday, September 11, 2014 @ 8:00 PM at the American Legion Post 8 Hall, 112 North Ave., New Rochelle — (doors to open at 7:30 PM)

Come join us as WE REMEMBER our fallen brothers and sisters who perished on or because of September 11, 2001. It will be an evening of healing through an Interfaith Prayer Service, patriotic songs, and remarks from those who lost loved ones because of 9/11. Those heroes who were taken or made that day shall Never Be Forgotten!

So please join us and stand together, as Americans, as we reflect on the past and teach our future generations to hold close the memory of the price paid for freedom.

The U.V.M.P.A in conduction with
Habitat for Humanity
has sponsored this memorial service as a way to honor the sacrifices made, and to share the experiences of, the many friends, families, and neighbors who were affected by the day’s events.The New Rochelle Armory was chosen for the first year’s service in consideration of the role played by the iconic structure in the aftermath of the devastation. The Armory served as a staging area for relief and safety supplies destined or “ground zero” to support the subsequent rescue and recovery efforts of first responders, construction workers and volunteers who risked their own lives to make a difference. We continue to honor those memories with steadfast commitment by telling their story.
