COOPERSTOWN – With the upcoming anniversary of 9/11, the Village of Cooperstown honors those killed in the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001.
Among those is George Morell, whose family in Cooperstown places flags out every year in his memory. Morell was killed in the attacks on 9/11. He worked as an investment counselor with Cantor Fitzgerald in offices on the 101-105th floors of the World Trade Center.
The community and visitors to the village showed up Tuesday to support the act of remembrance.
“[It’s a] very nice tribute to our country and 9/11, probably one of the worst terrorist events that has ever happened in this country. And it’s a great thing to post these flags so that people do not forget what happened to our country,” said Randy Saint-John, a visitor from Ohio.
Lakefront Park and other parts of the village also showcase red, white and blue to remember those who died on 9/11.
