A township in Bucks County will be remembering local residents who lost their lives in the country’s worst tragedy.
Lower Makefield Township will be honoring the memory of the 18 Bucks County residents who lost their lives in the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. A ceremony, which will be held at 8:30 AM on the day of the anniversary, will see the names of each resident read aloud, along with a moment of silence being given in their honor.
“We invite you to then visit The Garden of Reflection Memorial to honor their memory,” officials from Lower Makefield Township said on Facebook.
Among those lost on that day were Victor Saracini, a resident of Lower Makefield and one of the pilots on United Flight 175, which hit the World Trade Center, and Joshua Reiss, whose mother, Judi Reiss, has worked tirelessly to keep her son’s memory alive. Saracini’s widow, Ellen, has worked to pass legislature that would ensure further safety precautions to protect pilots and passengers.
