The community is invited to join Wellington’s Council at 8:30 AM on Sunday, September 11, 2022, to honor the victims of 9/11 with a remembrance ceremony at Wellington’s Patriot Memorial (12198 Forest Hill Boulevard), located next to Village Hall. 

The Village Council will make remarks and lay a wreath for those lost and affected by the attacks. The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office and Palm Beach County Fire Rescue will also be in attendance to show solidarity for those lost and affected by the events of September 11, 2001.

Wellington dedicated its Patriot Memorial eleven years ago on the 10th anniversary of the September 11th attacks. The memorial includes one of the largest steel beams salvaged from the World Trade Center, as well as an eternal flame, fountain, and etched glass panels inscribed with the names of the victims. 

Patriot Memorial sponsorships, including personalized brick pavers, are still available through the Wellington Community Foundation. For more information, contact Michelle Diaz at 561-791-4117 or michelled@wellingtonfl.gov.
