To the editor:

The 9-11 Memorial Maintenance Committee would like to thank the following individuals for attending the 2015 ceremony and offering words of remembrance: Mayor Pat Murphy; Rep. Richard Smith; Sen. Clark Chapin and Rev. Alex da Silva Souto from the New Milford United Methodist Church.

Also instrumental to the ceremony were the St. Francis Choir; Ray Plue for singing the National Anthem; Will Holding for setting up the ceremony site and Christian Martriano for providing the sound system.

The ceremony would not have been as memorable without the participation of our veterans, military personnel, color guards and first responders, including the police and fire departments and New Milford Ambulance Corps.

Many thanks are given to those who took time out of their day to attend the ceremony in remembrance and recognition. Never Forget 9-11-01.

Walter Bayer, Cheryl Bonis, Doreen Gray, Patrick Maguire, Peter Orenski, Tammy Reardon and Dan Sullivan
