The community is invited to join Wellington’s Council at 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, September 11, 2019, to honor the victims of 9/11 with a remembrance ceremony at Wellington’s Patriot Memorial, located next to Village Hall at 12198 Forest Hill Boulevard. The Village Council will make remarks and lay a wreath for those lost and affected by the attacks. The Palm Beach Central High School Choir will also participate.
Wellington dedicated its Patriot Memorial eight years ago on the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 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. For more information, contact Susan Trzepacz at (561) 791-4134 or Chris Macfarlane at (561) 753- 2422.
