LIMERICK PA – The heroism of Americans who lost their lives during the Sept. 11 (2001) terrorism attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City, and that of local residents who continue to volunteer today as emergency first responders, will again be acknowledged Monday (Sept. 11, 2017) with special ceremonies being held at the Western Montgomery Career and Technology Center, 77 Graterford Rd.
A contingent of students from the Spring-Ford Area, Pottsgrove, and Upper Perkiomen school districts who are members of the center’s Protective Services program will conduct a flag-raising ceremony beginning at 8:46 a.m., the approximate time when the first of the two Trade Center towers fell. They will be accompanied by members of the Spring-Ford Area High School band, who will play “Taps.”
Members of the area’s police departments and fire companies have been invited to attend, according to center Administrative Director Christopher Moritzen. Immediately following the presentation, they’re invited to enjoy a light breakfast prepared and served in the center’s dining room by students of its Culinary Arts program. It’s the school’s “way to say ‘thank you’ for their service,” Moritzen noted.
The event is free to attend, and open to the public. For more information, call the center at 610-489-7272.
