Several Towne Park associates took part in the third annual “Serve to Remember” event on September 8, an International Coastal Cleanup project in Annapolis, MD that served as a remembrance on the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 Terrorist Attacks.
The opening ceremony was held at the World War II Memorial in Annapolis, and included remarks from a variety of local and state political and military luminaries, including Senator Ben Cardin, Special Assistant to Senator Barbara Mikulski and Marine reservist Sarah Leming, Anne Arundel County Executive John R. Leopold, Elizabeth Wyble, president of Friends of Anne Arundel County Trails and Navy Pilot Commander Brian Sinclair.
The common theme strung throughout the speeches acknowledged that although there was significant loss on that faithful day on September 11, 2001, the American spirit has endured, and remained as strong as ever. Buoyed by what they had just heard, Towne Park and the 300 volunteers proved this sentiment.
