Horseheads Youth Bureau Holds 9/11 Tribute
HORSEHEADS, N.Y. (WENY) -- Earlier this afternoon, the Horseheads Youth Bureau held its annual ceremony to honor those who lost their lives during the attacks on our nation.
During the event, members from the youth bureau read letters and poems to the crowd, written by people who were directly affected by the terror attack. Along with the speeches, handmade tributes were also on display with pictures and names of the victims from that fateful day.
Town and County Fire Department Chief and keynote speaker Don Fischer told WENY, "What is nice about it is the young people. A lot of these people do not even know about what happened on September 11th, they were not even born. Now they get to carry on the tradition. I wasn't born when Pearl Harbor happened, but we still remember that. These people are the future of our country, and for them to keep this memory alive means a lot to a lot of people."
To hear from members on the youth bureau, you can tune into WENY News at 11pm. #NeverForget
