Yesterday was the dedication ceremony for the memorial. It was the culmination of many months of efforts. We thank those who attended yesterday, particularly the families, Mayor Warren, members of Newton’s Fire and Police departments and other city employees and officials. The memorial would not been possible without the efforts and support of hundreds of our neighbors. You all have our deepest thanks.
After 18 months of hard work, the day we have planned for has finally arrived. The Newton 9-11 Memorial will be officially dedicated on Saturday, November 10 at 11am. Please join us for this important event.
