Viewfinder: Easton Remembers Sept. 11
Members of all faiths came together for a service at Trinity Episcopal Church, followed by a ceremony honoring first responders at Scott Park.
The Trinity Episcopal Church in downtown Easton was host to an interfaith community service in remembrance of the tragic events that unfolded on September 11, 2001.
The ceremony continued at Scott Park where Mayor of Easton Sal Panto remarked, "I think the most notable change that I’ve noticed since that day is how much more personable our emergency responders have become."
"The average person doesn’t get to see exactly how much these men and women actually do," the mayor continued "and I just want to say thank you."
And that is what he and other elected officials from the surrounding boroughs, and Phillipsburg, NJ did. One-by-one they took turns thanking them and awarding each of their individual Chiefs with a framed certificate of thanks.
