Led by U.S. Congressman Leonard Lance, Hunterdon County Sheriff Fred W. Brown, and Prosecutor Anthony P. Kearns, III, officials and First Responders on Monday honored the memory of those who perished in the September 11, 2001 attacks, during a Remembrance Ceremony on the steps of the Historic Courthouse in Flemington.
Nearly 3,000 souls were lost on September 11, 2001, at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and on Flight 93 outside Shanksville, Pa., including 16 residents of Hunterdon County, and nearly 400 First Responders.
Sheriff Brown said, “I want to give special acknowledgment to all the First Responders who have joined us today. As a long time law enforcement officer and a former Police Chief, I know that we never know when duty may call us into a situation where our lives may be on the line. Thank you for your dedication and willingness to serve and protect your fellow citizens.”
