On Saturday, September 11th, 2021, the City of White Plains held its Annual Remembrance Ceremony at Liberty Park.
The City of White Plains recognized the six White Plains residents who lost their lives on September 11, 2001.
Our Community Youth Court program was named an Official Partner for the 20th Anniversary of the 9/11 Day of National Service and Remembrance.
As part of this award, the Community Youth Court program received the special 9/11 Flag of Honor, which includes the names of all 2,983 victims who lost their lives on September 11, 2001 and February 26, 1993. This 9/11 Flag of Honor visited the 9/11 Memorial and Museum in New York City on Sunday, June 27, 2021, and was physically on the ground where the Twin Towers once stood, and where the 9/11 Memorial now has been erected. The flag is now on display in the City Hall Rotunda through the end of this month.
In addition to the six White Plains residents who perished on 9/11/2001 the bio of fifty others were read aloud.
This was the largest national coordinated 9/11 Day Project in America and the City of White Plains is honored and proud to have participated.
The city’s ceremony involved youth who volunteer as part of the Community Youth Court program as well as youth involved with the Juvenile Justice System – none of whom were yet born on September 11th, 2001.
