September 11 Memorial Ceremonies, 2015
September 11, 2016 will mark the 15th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on our nation in 2001. What happened to our country and the nation 14 years ago was a horrific tragedy, and it should never be forgotten. On September 11, 2016, ceremonies will be taking place across the nation to honor the victims of that tragic day. We would like to invite all of you to attend a ceremony alongside your Union Brothers and Sisters as we join together in honor at one of the locations listed below.
If you are unable to attend an event in person, Remember our heroes with a moment of silence.
Observe a moment of silence on September 11 at any or all of the following times.
8:46 a.m.: Hijackers deliberately crash Flight 11 into floors 93 through 99 of the North Tower (1 WTC).
9:03 a.m.: Hijackers deliberately crash United Airlines Flight 175 into floors 77 through 85 of the South Tower (2 WTC).

10:28 a.m.: The North Tower (1 WTC) collapses. The 16-acre World Trade Center site is in ruins, with collateral damage affecting all adjacent properties and streets. A rescue and recovery effort begins immediately.
9/11 is a day to stand strong together and NEVER FORGET.

Council 62 would like to invite you to stand with them in honor and memory of the lives that were lost on September 11, 2001. This year will mark the 15th anniversary of 9/11. As we promised our commitment to never forget the events of that tragic day, Council 62 will once again be joining together at the memorial service that will be held at Eagle Rock Reservation in Essex County, NJ.
Eagle Rock marks the location where thousands solemnly gathered together as they watched the shocking events of September 11 unfold. The unparalleled view of the New York City skyline, along with the powerful message of peace and hope that permeates the space, has made Essex County Eagle Rock September 11th Memorial a special place for people to find comfort and solace.
In 2009 the Flight Crew Memorial at Eagle Rock was founded by Flight Attendant and Council 62 member Deb Calimano, as a tribute to the heroic Pilots and Flight Attendants whose lives were tragically lost on September 11, 2001.
The memorial service will begin at 8:00 AM. Attendees should arrive no later than 7:40 AM, to allow time for parking and walking to the memorial site. We ask that all Flight Attendants come in uniform for the service. For more information on Eagle Rock Reservation, including a map of the area, click here.

The 9-11 Memorial Stair Climbs are not timed race events, but a way for firefighters and the community to honor and remember the FDNY firefighters who selflessly gave their lives on September 11, 2001 so that others might live. Each participant pays tribute to a FDNY firefighter by climbing or walking the equivalent of the 110 stories of the World Trade Center. Your support of the 9-11 Memorial Stair Climb events provides assistance to the surviving families and co-workers of the 343 firefighters who made the ultimate sacrifice on September 11, 2001.
