“May We Never Forget”
On Monday September 11, 2017 the Brewster Fire Department hosted a 9/11 remembrance ceremony at Fire Headquarters.
The well attended memorial service honored all first responders and civilian victims who perished in the tragic events that occurred on September 11, 2001 in New York City, Washington D.C, and Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Participants included the Brewster Fire Department, Brewster Police Department Honor Guard, Brewster Fire Department Honor Guard, Brewster Town officials, local Scout groups, and other regional emergency service organizations and first responders.
Pastor Steven Trudel of the Cape Cod Bible Alliance Church provided the invocation for the service while Orleans Deputy Fire Chief Geoff Deering, Eastham Fire Chief Kent Farrenkopf, and former Mount Kisco NY Fire Chief Ralph Ingegneri read passages of reflection and prayer.
Inspiring renditions of the National Anthem, On Eagles Wings and God Bless America were sung by the Brewster Baptist Church Chorus. Ian McEwen of the Highland Light Bagpipe Band provided an outstanding performance of Amazing Grace on the bagpipes.
Special thanks go to Ralph and Rose Ingegneri for their outstanding work on the program, Michael Fitzgerald, Brewster Fire/Rescue Association for their financial support, and the Brewster Department of Public Works.
The Brewster Fire Department would like to thank all of the members of our community who joined us in remembering the victims of the tragic terrorist events that occurred on September 11, 2001.
“God Bless America”
