The South Park Township Board of Supervisors, in conjunction with Windover Hills United Methodist Church, is again sponsoring a September l1th Remembrance Ceremony that will be held - rain or shine -on Thursday, September 11 at 6:30 p.m.
The informal gathering will take place at Sunny Slopes located in the Allegheny County Park. The tribute will recognize the members of the departments who are the first to respond to any emergency in South Park Township: the South Park Township Police Department, Broughton Volunteer Fire Department, Library Volunteer Fire Company, and Tri-Community South Emergency Medical Service. Members of the Allegheny County Police Department and the Sheriff's Department will also be in attendance.
Active military personnel and veterans will be honored at the event due to the many sacrifices these men and women have made, and continue to make on behalf of our country. Other participants include the boy scouts, girl scouts, local performers, and a bagpipe player.
South Park Township invites everyone to attend the memorial ceremony that will include patriotic songs and the distribution of American flags. The boy scouts will be collecting old, worn flags that will be retired at a later date during a formal ceremony. The parking lot of Windover Hills United Methodist Church can be used to accommodate any parking overflow and the church will be used for the ceremony in the event of rain.
Please join us on September 11 to reflect and remember this poignant event.
