WESTWOOD’S ANNUAL 9/11 CANDLELIGHT CEREMONY
On Sunday evening September 11, 2022, Westwood will hold its annual 9/11 Candlelight Ceremony beginning at 8:00 pm. It will be held rain or shine at the Memorial, which is located at the south end of the Westwood train station. In keeping with the tradition that began 2 days after the tragic event in 2001, it is a solemn ceremony, beginning with an opening prayer by a local Clergy, the Pledge of Allegiance, and our National Anthem. The Westwood Volunteer Fire Department Color Guard will “Present Colors”, along with many other members of the Department. The Westwood Volunteer Ambulance Corps will also be in attendance. A number of songs will be played allowing people to reflect about all of the lives that were lost on that fateful day that now is part of our nation’s history. Special recognition will be given to the four Westwood residents who lost their lives at the World Trade Center on that day; Daphne Pouletsos, Michael Wholey, Francis Riccardelli and Kalyan Sarkar. In addition, we also recognize Sgt. Chris Hrbek, USMC, killed in action in Afghanistan. Had it not been for what happened on 9/11/2001, our troops would not have been fighting there to continue to protect America.
The public is asked to please bring candles if possible and to have them in glass containers.
