The Verona Department of Public Works painted the lawn in front of Town Hall to mark the 19th anniversary of 9/11.

Verona will mark the 19th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks with a ceremony on Friday, September 11, beginning at 8:45 a.m. in the Civic Center by the 9/11 monument. Masks and social distancing will be required because of the continued risk of COVID-19.

Two Verona residents died in the attacks on the World Trade Center towers, Stephen Roach and William Erwin. Both men are remembered on Verona’s monument, which contains pieces of steel from the towers, as well as on the 9/11 Memorial Wall in lower Manhattan. Howard Kestenbaum, a Montclair resident who worshipped at Verona’s former synagogue, Congregation Beth Ahm, also died in the attacks.

Essex County government will hold a virtual ceremony beginning at 8 a.m. on Friday. The event will be live-streamed on the county’s website. Eagle Rock Reservation, where the county’s 9/11 monument is located, will be closed to the public from 5 to 10 a.m. on Friday.
