Holding Hands to Memorialize 9/11
Looking for a way to actively participate in a 9/11 commemoration ceremony? RSVP for the "Hand in Hand, Remembering 9/11" event on September 10, 2011. In a letter on the "Hand in Hand" website, Community Board 1 Chairperson Julie Menin outlines the details of the event:
"On Saturday, September 10th, 2011 at 8:46 a.m., we will commemorate the 10 year anniversary of the September 11th attacks, when thousands of people will grasp hands to form a human chain along the waterfront from the tip of Lower Manhattan heading north. We then encourage you to visit historic Battery Park where you can post a message or memento on our Wall of Remembrance, portions of which will be displayed at the 9/11 Memorial Museum for years to come. In addition, downtown non-profits will be hosting special community service projects throughout our neighborhood and we invite you to get involved and volunteer in the community."
While participation is free, pre-registration here is required. Participants will be contacted via email prior to the event with check-in instructions.
