Twenty years later, West Hempstead residents reflect on 9/11


Residents, local elected officials and community groups gathered around the 9/11 Memorial at Hall’s Pond Park in West Hempstead last Saturday for the West Hempstead Community Support Association’s annual 9/11 service. Reflecting on the 20th anniversary of the Sept 11. attacks, people of all ages filled the park to promote the same resounding message: to never forget.

Community groups including West Hempstead Boy Scout Troop 240, West Hempstead/Franklin Square Girl Scout Service Unit Troop 1389 and the Lakeview and West Hempstead fire departments took part in the ceremony.
