On the solemn occasion of the 15th Anniversary of the attack on the New York World Trade Center, Sunday, September 11, 2016, the Railroad Museum of Long Island will partner with the not-for-profit organization, “Memories Everyday, Inc.” to memorialize the historic event from 8:00 AM to 12:00 Noon at the Museum, 416 Griffing Avenue, Riverhead, NY.

Nationally and Internationally renowned street artists will create a commemorative mural on the side of two museum railcars to honor and remember the souls that were lost that day.  Moments of silence will be held at 8:45 AM, the time the first plane hit the South Tower, and again at 9:03 AM, the time the second plane hit the North Tower.  At 10:05 AM, the time of the South Tower collapse, American Legion Post 269 will provide a 21 gun salute and AMVETS Post 111 will provide the ceremonial playing of taps.

This memorial observation will be held rain or shine and is open to the public.  Attendees are encouraged to bring a folding chair to this open air ceremony.
