Mayor and Council Meeting

Annual 9/11 Ceremony

For the past sixteen years, there has been an annual ceremony at the Bernardsville Public Library honoring the two borough residents who lost their lives in the 9/11 terrorist’s attacks on America. "One thing we must do as Americans is never forget,'' Mayor Kevin Sooy told a gathering of about 40 residents in the library parking lot. Library Director Alexandria Arnold welcomed residents to the service. Local Bernards High School students, Geneva Isaacson, David Oliveira, and Dee Valazquez, were then called upon to read a poem and biographies of the two local residents who died that day: Allison Horstmann Jones and Tom Reinig.  As part of the ceremony, the American flag which was flown at half-staff, was raised while Bernards High School senior Alex Kiel sounded ''Amazing Grace'' on trumpet. Terry Thompson, president of the Library Board of Trustees, then led the crowd in the Pledge of Allegiance to conclude the service.
