9/11 Candlelight Commemoration in Hazlet

Saturday, September 11, 2021

Meet at the gazebo

Join us in a solemn remembrance of September 11, 2001 — the 20th anniversary of that day's tragic events. 

To accommodate those who plan to attend morning ceremonies in New York City, we will gather Saturday evening at 6:45 pm at the gazebo in Veterans Park, near the pond, 1776 Union Avenue. There will be live music and prayers. At dusk, candles will be distributed and lighted. Names will be read of those we lost in our Hazlet family. 

At the conclusion, all are invited to take a quiet walk to the township's 9/11 memorial. 

Participants will the Hazlet Police Department, Chaplain and Honor Guard; Hazlet First Aid; Hazlet Fire Department and the Raritan High School Marching Band.

All are welcome. Limited seating available. Free event. The tribute will be held rain or shine.
