Montgomery hosted 9-11 Open Houses Monday

Posted on September 12, 2017

Two open houses were held Monday at the 9-11 Monument near the upper parking lot of Montgomery Veterans Park. The first was held at 9:45 AM, symbolic of the time of the first attack on the World Trade Center in NYC. Fire Company #1 sirens were sounded at that time.

The second open house there was held at 7 PM, and included an educational table display and a local resident available to answer questions – Eric Bulger, a Port Authority Policeman who rescued people in the towers the day of the 2001 attack. Cub scouts led the Pledge of Allegiance and people of all ages attended after work and school.

All members of the public are welcome to visit the monument at any time from dawn to dusk daily. Never forget.

Montgomery Township’s new designation as a “Purple Heart Township” was marked with a public ceremony at the Township building Tuesday, September 19th.  This designation recognizes a township’s support for the sacrifice of military members of a community wounded or killed while serving the nation in a time of war.

Speakers presented before an overflowing courtroom.  Representatives from the Military Order of the Purple Heart; Somerset County  Veterans Services; Rolling Thunder, Inc., a national veterans support group; the Montgomery Township Veterans Memorial Committee; boy scouts and leaders, and many local dignitaries came out to honor veterans and Montgomery’s Purple Heart recipients in particular.
