  4. To commemorate the twentieth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, Jenkintown Borough will observe a silent vigil at Jenkintown Town Square from 8:30 am to 10:30 am, Saturday, September 11, 2021. The vigil honors the memory of the firefighters, police, emergency medical personnel, and other first responders who lost lives and health during their efforts to protect and rescue others affected by the events of that day. The vigil also acknowledges the long shadow that the 9/11 events continue to cast on the United States and the world. After brief introductory remarks, the silent vigil will begin at 8:46 am, the time that American Airlines flight 11 was flown into the World Trade Center North Tower. The vigil will end at 10:28 am, the time of the collapse of the North Tower. While this will be a silent vigil, participants who are moved to speak about the events of 9/11 in some way are encouraged to do so. However the purpose of the vigil is not to conduct discussion or conversation.
