Tri-Municipal 9/11 Memorial Ceremony at Croton Landing On Saturday, September 11th at 1:00 p.m.

The municipalities of the Town of Cortlandt and the Villages of Buchanan and Croton-on-Hudson will hold a ceremony at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 11, 2021 at the “Reaching Through the Shadow” Memorial at Croton Landing Park in Croton-on-Hudson, New York. In case of inclement weather, the ceremony will be held indoors at the Harmon Firehouse, located at 30 Wayne Street, Croton.

Participants will gather in the Croton Landing Park parking area at the north end of Elliott Way at        12:30 p.m. for the ceremony at 1:00 p.m.  Led by a color guard from the community, they will walk in procession along the quarter-of- a-mile pathway north to the site on the Hudson River.  A shuttle van from the Village of Croton will be available in the parking area to transport those who need assistance. 

Please join us on this 20th Anniversary of these tragic events for this important ceremony to honor and remember those who lost their lives.

“Every 9/11 we hold a very beautiful and solemn ceremony to honor those we lost tragically that day in our Country and in our community at our Memorial, “Reaching Through the Shadow”, comments Supervisor Linda Puglisi. “However, every day we will never forget them and we will always thank the first responders”.

Buchanan Mayor Theresa Knickerbocker says, “It is important on this 20th Anniversary of Sept 11th that we continue to remember and honor all those innocent lives that were lost that day. We are grateful to our first responders who gave all that day to save others. We appreciate all our first responders Police, Fire, Ems and our service men and women who protect us each and every day. Thank you for your service.”

Croton-on Hudson Mayor Brian Pugh states, "As we commemorate the 20th anniversary of the September 11th attacks, we remember those that lost family & friends, the brave first & second responders who rushed to render aid—many of whom lost their lives due to illness from exposure at Ground Zero—and our dedicated veterans of the War on Terrorism. On that day and the years since, everyday Americans showed us the true meaning of courage. The camaraderie and deep care that first responders showed as they put their lives at risk for complete strangers is part of the American spirit that we cherish and that will always live on in this great nation.”
