Roselle Park will hold its annual September 11th Remembrance Service on Tuesday, September 11th at 7 o’clock at night in Kelly-Kaulfers Memorial Park. The ceremony will take a moment out of the day and have the community come together to remember the victims and heroes of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.
Port Authority Sergeant Robert Kaulfers, one of the persons that the park is named for, used to live on West Lincoln Avenue before moving to Kenilworth and died on that clear Tuesday morning 17 years ago along with 2,976 other innocent lives. The deadliest terrorist attack on American soil has also left thousands with long-lasting injuries.
The governing body asks that on Tuesday, September 11th, the American flag be displayed outside every Roselle Park home, apartment, office, and storefront. The Borough does this in honor of those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001, their families, friends, and loved ones.
Anyone requesting more information about the service can contact the event coordinator Rupen Shah at (908) 245-0666.
Kelly-Kaulfers Memorial Park is located on Laurel Avenue between the Roselle Park Faitoute firehouse and the Union County Emergency Medical Services building.
