Mahwah’s 9/11 ceremony will once again feature a display of flags honoring those lost in the September 11 attacks, thanks to a group of exempt township firefighters.
Organizers Tom Dewan, Jack Gardner, Susan Gardner, Bob Franzetti, Margie Murphy and Tom Murphy Friday arranged a display of small American flags on the lawn outside the township’s 9/11 tree, across from Winter’s Pond.
The current display is the third annual. It is made up of 403 flags, representing the 403 police officers and firefighters who perished on 9/11.
The tribute has served as one of the visual focal points of the township’s annual 9/11 commemoration. This year, the ceremony is set to take place next Wednesday. Get all of the information on the event here.
