My Wife and I attended the 9/11 Ceremonies last evening. If not for the Scout groups and the Emergency Services, there would have been no one there except for the politicians. I am also a bit put out that during the National Anthem, the several photographers were scurrying about trying to get "the perfect picture" rather than paying their proper respects to the Country and those that were taken from us on that day. Shame on them.

I seem to remember seeing the police department honor guard there as well but there aren't any pictures or mention of them ...

Sorry, T-Bird! Unfortunately I wasn't able to attend the ceremony last night, but I just added the PD into the caption. If you have a photo of the honor guard, please feel free to upload it to this gallery, or email it to me and I will upload it. Thanks!

At LEAST Mahwah Did "Plant" a Nice White OAK Tree as a "Remembrance" to the ONE Mahwah Resident who was Killed on that day. And also That the town did something nice for this sad event!

Gotta Understant "Todays People".. If YOU (Town) Was "Giving Away MONEY" they would have shown up. Nobody cares about this Major Event, that Happend 11 years ago. I too due infact: RESPECT that the town of Mahwah did some thing for the "Mahwah Resident" who was Killed on 9-11-01!
