Sept. 11 Remembrance Ceremony In Wellington

The community is invited to join the Wellington Village Council on Sunday, Sept. 11 at 8:30 a.m. to honor the victims of 9/11 with a remembrance ceremony at the Wellington Patriot Memorial, located at 12198 W. Forest Hill Blvd.

Council members will make remarks and lay a wreath for those lost and affected by the attacks 21 years ago. The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office and Palm Beach County Fire-Rescue will also be in attendance to show solidarity.

Wellington dedicated its Patriot Memorial 11 years ago on the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. The memorial includes one of the largest steel beams salvaged from the World Trade Center, as well as an eternal flame, fountain and etched glass panels inscribed with the names of the victims.

Patriot Memorial sponsorships, including personalized brick pavers, are still available through the Wellington Community Foundation. For more info., contact Michelle Diaz at (561) 791-4117 or
