As the 20th anniversary of September 11th approaches our thoughts are once again with all the victims who were murdered on that tragic morning, especially those from our community, Kevin O’Rourke, Neil D. Levin, Thomas E. Jurgens, Joseph Rivelli, Jr., Ira Zaslow, Bettina Browne Radburn and Howard Selwyn.
John Feal, an American political activist known for his advocacy for the first responders of 9/11 will be the featured guest speaker at the ceremony. Feal founded the FealGood Foundation which is dedicated to lobbying members of Congress to provide additional funding to 9/11 responders and to help connect responders with health care and support resources. In 2019, Feal worked closely with comedian and fellow advocate Jon Stewart to successfully lobby Congress for the renewal of a 9/11 victim’s compensation fund.
On Sunday, September 12th at 4:00 pm please join us at Andrew J. Parise Park in Cedarhurst as we remember the horrific events of September 11th and pay tribute to the first responders and their families.
