A reminder that this year's Memorial will be a virtual event due to the ongoing challenges related to Covid-19. Please take a few moments on September 11th to honour the victims, their families and the first responders on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of 9/11. We would also ask that you take some time on Sunday, September 12th to commemorate the sacrifice of the 125 new names that were added to the memorial wall this year. We will never forget.
