Wellington to Host 9/11 Remembrance Ceremony
at Patriot Memorial

The community is invited to join Wellington’s Council at 6:00 p.m. on Monday, September 11th, 2017 to honor the victims of September 11, 2001 at a remembrance ceremony. The ceremony will be held at the Patriot Memorial, located at 12198 Forest Hill Boulevard, next to Village Hall. The Village Council will make remarks and lay a wreath for those lost and affected by the attacks.

Wellington dedicated its Patriot Memorial six years ago on the 10th anniversary of the September 11th 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 information, contact Susan Trzepacz at (561) 791-4000 or strzepacz@wellingtonfl.gov.
