Mayor, Natalie McNish, stated "September 11, 2001 is a day frozen in time for many of our citizens, including myself. It was a day of disbelief, anguish, and anger unlike anything many of us had ever experienced before. September 12, 2001 was also a day I remember well. It was a day of unity, patriotism, and pride. We vowed then, as we do today, that we would 'Never Forget.' On the anniversary of these tragic events, it is our honor to remember and to share out memories with others. Citizens of Marshfield and beyond are invited to unite in patriotism and pride, and pay their respects to the fallen. It is also an opportunity to educate younger generations on the events of that day and what it meant to those of us who lived it."
