Candlelight fills the room as family and friends pause to remember

Please join us as we pay tribute to the lives lost and take time to reflect on the tragic events of September 11, 2001. A Memorial Service and Candlelight Vigil will be held this Saturday, September 11, on the front lawn of the New Rochelle Armory. Services start at 7:30 PM. The Armory is located at 270 Main Street in New Rochelle.

As family, friends and neighbors gather to show their support, they will be joined by units representing the United States Marine Corp, US Army,NRFD, NRPD, NY State Police, Westchester County Police,Westchester Pipes and Drum Corp, Westchester County Dept of Corrections, the MTA Police, the USO Liberty Bells and many more. This gathering reinforces just how many lives were affected by the tragic events of that day. A schedule of events to follow.

Serving our Nation and our City in times of war and peace, the Armory also served as a staging point for relief supplies being sent to ground zero in the aftermath of the Trade Towers collapse.

So please join us  not only to remember those lost, but celebrate the time we shared with them.

They are all gone into the world of light,
And I alone sit lingering here;
Their very memory is fair and bright,
And my sad thoughts doth clear.
~ Henry Vaughan,
