Sunday, September 11 is the 15th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, which claimed 2,996 lives, including two Verona residents.

Verona will hold its commemoration at the 9/11 monument in the center of town at 8:45 a.m.

At 3 p.m., the Verona Public Library will open a free exhibit of photos taken in the aftermath of 9/11 and Verona resident Gary Ellenbogen, who was in the Pentagon during the attacks, will share his thoughts of that day.

At 7 p.m., the Episcopal Church of the Holy Spirit will offer an opportunity for prayer and remembrance. There will be a memorial Evening Prayer Service and a walk through the church’s labyrinth.

Last year, Marina Koren, a 2008 graduate of Verona High School, wrote a story for The Atlantic about how Verona got the piece of steel from the World Trade Center that is displayed at the base of its monument. You can read her piece again here.
