PHOTOS: Chatham Pays Tribute to 9/11 Victims

A remembrance ceremony in Chatham Borough marked all three memorials in town.

Chatham Borough held their 9-11 Remembrance Ceremony Saturday evening, with stops at the three memorials in town.

The ceremony began with a Color Guard salute and bagpipe band at the Chatham NJ Transit train station, where a tree was dedicated in 2002 to the memory of those Chathamites who took the train into New York City on Sept. 11, 2001 and never came home.

Then came a procession to Reasoner Park, where Marty Sechehay, the captain of the Chatham Emergency Squad, Chatham Borough Fire Chief Peter Glogolich and Chatham Borough Police Chief Philip J. Crosson laid a wreath at the memorial dedicated to the first responders who died in the terrorist attacks.

The Color Guard and bagpipe band then led the families of Chatham residents who died, members of the Chatham Borough, Township and Green Village Fire Departments, the borough and township police departments and the Chatham Emergency Squad to the 9-11 Memorial in Memorial Park.
