On September 11, during a community service in Town Park, Sunset Beach honored those who lost their lives twenty one years ago when terrorist attacks killed nearly 3,000 people at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and Shanksville, Pennsylvania.
The Committee to Honor America’s Veterans (CHAV) and the Town of Sunset Beach community members gathered for a memorial service where they unveiled a hand crafted 9/11 monument. The monument was made by designer David McCune and incorporates a piece of steel from Twin Towers.
The program included special remarks by Lisa Anglin, Town Administrator, Rick Gimbl, Fire Department New York, Lou DeVita, CHAV Officer and music by Piper Dennis Ryan of the Wilmington Police Department Pipe Band.
The monument is located in Town Park for all to see and stands as a reminder to never forget what happened to those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001.
