The township is seeking a citizen guest speaker to share their 9/11 experience during its annual ceremony next Wednesday.
Committeeman Don Brauckmann, who is helping organize the event this year, said the township is looking for a resident with some kind of connection to the Sept. 11 attacks—either directly or through a friend or relative—to speak during the ceremony.
The steel will be placed inside a glass case in the lobby of the municipal building for the time being, until a more permanent display is created. Brauckmann said an ad hoc group has been formed to discuss fundraising efforts for creating the display and picking a location, but nothing has been decided yet.
The steel will be unveiled at next week's ceremony, led out of the municipal building by a procession of firefighters.
The ceremony will be held at 6 p.m. next Wednesday (Sept. 11), at the municipal building. Along with the citizen guest speaker, Fire Chief Bill Kramer, Public Safety Director Mickey King and Burlington County Sheriff Jean Stanfield will all speak during the ceremony, with Sen. Diane Allen providing the closing remarks.
