September 11, 2008 A Day of Quiet Reflection and Remembrance of 9/ 11 Victims
Local commemoration of tragic day
September 11, 2001 is commemorated differently than Veterans' Day or Memorial Day. September 11 is not a national holiday; there are no parades, there are no large crowds memorializing the day other than ceremonies at the points of attack. Instead, in Putnam Valley, as in other parts of the country, September 11, 2008 was a day of quiet reflection.
