City of Newburgh remembers 9-11

Posted

The City of Newburgh remembered those who gave their lives and those who helped in the rescue and recovery during its annual 9-11 remembrance ceremony, Sunday morning at Park Place.

City Fire Chief F. J. Spinelli welcomed everyone to the ceremony as Deacon Peter Haight, the city’s fire chaplain offered an opening prayer.

Spinelli, Assistant Fire Chief Paul Pullar and VFW Member Dave McTamaney read the names of Orange County resident who died on that day.
Assemblyman Jonathan Jacobson also spoke, recalling that in the days after 9-11, the country was more united. Everyone had flags on their cars. There were no red or blue states.

City Historian Mary McTamaney said the date was important in the city;s history for another reason: the first organizational meeting of the city;s fire department took place on September 11, 1797.
