9-11 Service At Veterans Park
By Kay Lemon

MATAMORAS — This year will mark the 20th Anniversary of 9-11, and there will be a Candlelight Memorial Service at 7 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 11 at the Veterans Memorial Park and Education Center at Airport Park in Matamoras.
The ceremony will begin with the placing of a Memorial Wreath, a color guard with Legion members, and local Scouts. As you enter you will pass under the Matamoras Fire Department’s huge American Flag.
There will be a very special service with music from a choral group and a group playing patriotic music. Two local pastors will be praying to bring us together as a community. There will be a guest speaker.
The service will end with the lighting of candles, the singing of “Let There Be Peace on Earth”, a closing prayer, the singing of “God Bless America,” followed by “Taps.”
Please bring a chair and come together as a community from all around Pike County, New Jersey and New York. You will leave feeling closer together as we face a world that is facing so much trouble and turmoil.
