"As we know, this year marks the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City, The Pentagon, and the crash of Flight 93 outside of Shanksville, Pennsylvania, on Sept. 11. As the Radnor community prepares to commemorate the 20th anniversary of those attacks, we want to take time to honor all those lost including the brave first responders who sacrificed their lives to help save as many as they could that day. More, we share our gratitude to all first responders who continue to selflessly serve our communities everyday,” said William White, Township Manager.
“There are many remembrance ceremonies and events taking place in our area this weekend and we encourage those who are able to participate. We welcome the community to attend any of the following commemoration events around town or perhaps simply take a private moment to reflect and honor those lost and those who continue to serve," said White. "As a community, we hope you will join us in recognition of both the lives lost and the sacrifices made by first responders and their families.”
