Orange County Executive Steven M. Neuhaus announces that William Bratton Jr. will be the keynote speaker at the County’s September 11th Patriot Day ceremony.
Bratton and his wife, Mary, lost their 23-year-old daughter, Michelle Renee Bratton, on Sept. 11, 2001. The event, which is open to the public, will be held at the Orange County Arboretum at Thomas Bull Memorial Park on Fri., Sept. 11 at 6 p.m. All guests must wear masks and practice social distancing during the program.
Neuhaus also announces another Orange County 9/11 tribute planned for that evening. The Orange County Emergency Services Center, located at 22 Wells Farm Rd. in Goshen, will shine twin beams on Friday as a tribute to those lost during the terrorist attacks. The beams will be on at dusk on 9/11 and remained lit throughout the evening.
