WEST WINFIELD, NY – Tuesday marked the 17th anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks on the United States.

About 100 people gathered in the auditorium of the Mount Markham High School for the 11th annual Mt. Markham Remembrance Day.

The crowd heard speeches from political dignitaries, some of whom were in New York City on that day, and listened to patriotic music.

“The world has changed since then,” says 101st District Assemblyman Brian Miller.

“I have a 14-year-old and I explain to him what happened on 9-11, and then we tell him how the world has changed from 2001 to 2018. Going to a sporting event now, you get wanded down. If you travel by air, it’s a whole series of checkpoints to get through. Before it wasn’t like that.”

Gold Star families, first responders, and military personnel were also recognized at the ceremony.
