September 11: A Day of Rememberance

The City of White Plains will remember those who lost their lives and worked to help others on September 11, 2001 with several events that pay tribute to and honor the victims and heroes of this significant day in our national history.


On Tuesday, September 11, six American flags will fly from City Hall as homage to the six residents of White Plains who lost their lives.  


A Remembrance Ceremony will be held at 8:00 a.m. at Liberty Park on Lake Street, the permanent memorial site for these residents.  The ceremony will include a flag raising, wreath laying, and reflections. This event is open to the public and all White Plains residents are encouraged to attend.


Also on Tuesday, September 11 the City of White Plains Personnel Department and the American Red Cross will provide residents an opportunity to roll up their sleeves and give blood.  The Blood Drive will be held at City Hall, 255 Main Street in White Plains, from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.  Donating just one pint of blood can save up to three lives and is a wonderful way to give back.  Pre-registration is available at www.redcrossblood.org Sponsor code WPCITYHALL.
