Sail for America - Commemorating 9/11
Just a little over a year ago, four very talented women sailors were at LaGuardia Airport on the way to the Rush Creek Yacht Club in Heath, Texas to compete for the Adams Cup for the Women's US Sailing Championship. Sue Miller, Stephanie Baas, Cindy Jordan and Kristen McAllister had spent a good part of the summer last year competing in local and area competitions to win the right to participate in this prestigious event. But they never got on a plane that day, for it was September 11, 2001, and two airplanes had just flown into the World Trade Center.
North Hempstead Marks September 11
The Town of North Hempstead held a modest ceremony marking the one-year anniversary of the September 11, 2001 tragedy. After welcoming those who gathered at the steps of Town Hall in Manhasset, Supervisor May Newburger introduced Kimberly Ann Corcoran, who sang the National Anthem. Following this, Richard Greenwood and Joseph Pallisco of the Franklin Square Fire Department lowered the American flag to half-mast. Receiver of Taxes Ann Galante gave the invocation, after which Supervisor Newburger called for a moment of silence, marking the time at 8:46 a.m. when the first plane hit the World Trade Center.
