Interfaith Service Will Remember 9/11 Today
Join in remembering the day no one can forget.
It'll be 11 years since 9/11, and for many, it still feels just like yesterday.
The Woodbridge Interfaith Clergy Council and representatives of the Woodbridge Township Emergency Response community will host a 9/11 Interfaith Memorial Service on today at Woodbridge Town Hall at 7 pm.
The ceremony will be held at the 9/11 Memorial outside the municipal building, where the names of locals who perished are emblazoned on a granite memorial marker.
Nine Woodbridge residents were killed in the horrific attacks on the United States on September 11, 2001. The township hasn't forgotten them.
Many township emergency service personnel volunteered to help on 9/11, and in the grim days afterward with the clean-up.
The nine township residents who died on Sept. 11 were: Edward L. Allegretto, 51, Colonia; Marilyn C. Bautista, 46, Iselin; Cmdr. Patrick S. Dunn, USN, 39; John A. Larson, 37, Colonia; James F. Lynch, 47, Woodbridge; Charles J. Mauro, 38; Tonyell McDay, 25, Colonia; Narender Nath, 33, Colonia; and Sankara S. Velamuri 63, Avenel.
