The September 11th Memorial Garden Oversight Committee invites the community to visit the Memorial Garden on Wednesday, September 11th to commemorate the eighteenth anniversary of the tragic terrorist attacks that took the lives of town residents Geoffrey Cloud, Cora Hidalgo Holland, and Peter Morgan Goodrich, and to remember others who perished that day, including Lisa Gordenstein, whose family now lives in Sudbury.
The bells at First Parish of Sudbury will toll at 8:46 a.m., the time the first hijacked plane hit the World Trade Center in 2001. A Color Guard of Police and Fire personnel will present the flag, while Committee members, friends, and relatives of those lost will lay flowers at the Memorial Garden center stone. Residents are encouraged to come to the Garden during the morning event, or to visit the site at any point throughout the day to pay their respects.
The September 11th Memorial Garden is located in Heritage Park, at the intersection of Concord Road and Route 27, across from Sudbury Town Hall.
