HERMOSA BEACH KIWANIS CLUB TO HOLD A 9/11 REMEMBRANCE CEREMONY FOR ALL RESIDENTS
The Hermosa Beach Kiwanis Club is holding a 9/11 Remembrance Ceremony at noon Wednesday, Sept. 11 at the Hermosa Beach Kiwanis Club Hall, 2515 Valley Drive, Hermosa Beach, Ca.
The Club invites the community to join them in paying tribute to the almost 3000 lives lost on Sept. 11, 2001 and the brave firefighters and police who took part in this tragic event.
“This is the city of Hermosa Beach’s official observance of 9/11,” said Hermosa Beach Police Chaplain Rabbi Gila Katz.
The Program will include remarks by Hermosa Beach Councilman Howard Fishman, Hermosa Beach Police Chief Michael McCrary, Hermosa Beach police Capt. Tom Thompson, and a benediction by the chaplain.
“This is the city of Hermosa Beach’s official observance of 9/11”, said Rabbi Katz,” who worked with the Hermosa Kiwanis Club to organize the Program. I worked at ground zero as a Red Cross Disaster Chaplain from September 26 to October 16, 2001. There was an unprecedented spirit of support and generosity right after the attacks, we not only want to pay tribute and remember the 2997 lives that were lost but also remember how our country came together at that time. We have never been the same as a country since the 9/11 terrorist attacks and we must never ever forget,” exclaimed Rabbi Katz.
“We hope the community will join us in honoring all involved,” said Hermosa Beach Kiwanis Club President Jeff Maxwell.
