City of Stamford 9/11 Special Events

As the tenth anniversary of September 11th approaches, Mayor Michael Pavia has made plans to commemorate the day in a memorable and appropriate manner for Stamford. 

Stamford will mark the 10th anniversary with two very special events; both will be held on Friday, September 9, 2011.  At 8:30 AM, the City will host a ceremony in the Lobby of the Government Center to dedicate a new memorial created from a piece of steel from the Twin Towers.  The artifact was received from the Port Authority of New York this past spring and will become part of a monument that will remain in the Government Center.  This ceremony is expected to last 35 minutes and will recognize the times that each of the planes struck the Towers with a tolling of the bell.
The second event will be held at 11:00 AM at Cove Island Park at the Anchor of Hope, near the pavilion.  This larger event will include personnel from Stamford Fire Department, Stamford’s Volunteer fire departments, Stamford Police and Color Guard and EMS.  Members of the Mayor’s Multicultural Council and the Interfaith Council will also be participating in the program.  The American flag that will be raised at the ceremony has significant meaning to Stamford; the flag was flown during a recent mission in Afghanistan by a US Army Captain, a member of the 10th Mountain Division, in honor of his home town.
