Liberty pays tribute to September 11, 2001

Although our students do not of a direct recollection of the attacks that occurred on Sept. 11, 2001, they felt the nation’s hurt during a district-wide moment of silence.

The Liberty Central School District went silent at 8:46 a.m. to to mark the moment when  American Airlines Flight 11 crashed into floors 93 through 99 of the North Tower of the World Trade Center and reflect on the lives that were lost.

While somber day, it also serves as an opportunity to reflect on the resiliency of Americans and of our willingness to sacrifice and assist others in times of need.

The Town of Liberty Parks and Recreation will hold a memorial service on Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2018 at 6 p.m. at the Main Street Stage.

Speakers and performers will include Superintendent of Schools Dr. Augustine E. Tornatore, Liberty High School “Grandma” Henrietta Phelps, former Liberty teachers Ralph Bressler and Gary Siegel and John Veleber. Mr. Veleber is the senior Vice President at Wayne Bank. He is also a witness from ground zero.
