Village remembers 9/11

8 Sep

One of the most solemn anniversaries in our nation’s history comes around again this week. The two simple words by which we all know it belie the horror of the day: 9/11.

The Village of Webster always does a very nice job commemorating the occasion, with a ceremony held at the gazebo at Veterans Memorial Park on North Ave.

Scheduled for Wednesday at 6:30 p.m., the event usually lasts around 45 or 50 minutes, and includes first responders and local and regional political representatives who offer some comments. The Chorus of the Genesee also participates, performing some patriotic tunes.

Members of the Webster Fire Department are planning to congregate at the station on South Ave. at around 6:15 and march as a group to the ceremony. You won’t want to miss that.
