Gloucester County Patriot’s Day Ceremony will be held virtually

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Gloucester County’s Patriots Day ceremony will be prerecorded this year for the safety of our families and attendees.

Each year, Gloucester County residents gather to honor the lives lost on September 11, 2001 at the Place of Reflection in Chestnut Branch Park in Mantua. Due to Executive Orders and CDC guidelines, we have made the difficult decision to record a virtual ceremony.

We understand the disappointment this may bring to our residents. The COVID-19 pandemic has caused us to miss a lot of milestones and special events this year. Although we may not gather together, we will continue to honor the individuals who perished on that day virtually.

We will share the 2020 ceremony on our Facebook, YouTube and County website. The ceremony will also be viewable on our local channels on September 11, 2020 at 9 a.m. on Comcast Channel 97 or Verizon Channel 34.

We hope you will join in and watch the stream to memorialize the individuals we lost that day.
