September 11, 2001 ~ Observing the 19th Anniversary in Bedford

9-11 Memorial at Springs Brook Park – a few hundred yards inside the gate


Although public ceremonies have been canceled due to the pandemic, several commemorations will take place on Friday morning.

The 9-11 Memorial has been spruced up for those to want to visit the site and honor the September 11, 2001, national tragedy. The park offers a quiet spot to reflect and memorializes the event with two sugar maple trees (the state tree of New York) which stand for the twin towers.  In addition, the four Kousa Dogwoods signify the four planes, the nine Rose of Sharon bushes, and the eleven rocks note the date of the infamous day.
