Sept. 11th Memorial Ribbon Cutting at Cos Cob Park

911 Memorial at Cos Cob ParkMark your calendars. The September 11th Memorial/Greenwich is hosting a ribbon cutting ceremony on Friday, Sept. 11 at 9:00am to celebrate the completion of construction and opening of the memorial to the public. Members of the community are invited to attend.

Earlier this spring, the town celebrated the initiation of construction with a groundbreaking ceremony. Now, after nearly 6 years of planning and fundraising, the memorial is finally completed and open to the public. The Board of Directors would commemorate the opening as well as the town, RTM, and nearly 1,000 donors who supported the project with an official ribbon cutting ceremony.

“We are so grateful for the Board and all their hard work on getting this memorial built,” said Susan Wohlforth, who’s husband was killed on 9/11, “It was a long process, but truly worth the wait. I’m so glad to be able to finally have a peaceful place here at home to reflect, not only on 9/11 but throughout the year.”

Attending the ceremony will be victims’ family members, local officials, and local religious leaders.

“We are thrilled to finally announce the opening of the September 11th Memorial,” said President Jimmy Ritman, “It is even more beautiful than we expected and will be a great way for the community to pay its respects and remember those lost”.

The September 11th Memorial/Greenwich is part of the Greenwich Community Projects Fund, Inc. a 501 (c)(3).
