Staten Island, NY – Borough President Vito J. Fossella announced today that he will be hosting an in-person event for the annual Staten Island 9/11 Memorial Ceremony.

Special musical selections and a video tribute will honor those we lost.
“It is an honor that we continue the ceremony at the Postcards 9/11 Memorial which beautifully stands on the waterfront in St. George. We at Borough Hall are so pleased to be able to join together in person to remember those we lost during the tragedy, and those First Responders who have passed since then as a result of their bravery,” said Borough President Vito Fossella. “After 21 years, we hope this ceremony continues to provide solace and support to the friends and families who have lost a loved one. Please join us in honoring those Staten Islanders and their memories this September.”
