Solomon Sr., invited the public to watch the memorial service, held in 2019 at Oakland Beach.

“On behalf of Mayor Solomon, Representative Solomon and myself, we invite the public to commemorate the 19th Anniversary of September 11th from the safety of their homes by watching the ceremony and discussing it with their family,” said Vella-Wilkinson. “With the limitations placed on us by COVID-19, we’re proud that Warwick can stand by its promise to ‘Never Forget.’ Events such as these serve to bring us closer together as we honor those who fell; and it reminds us of the work we still need to do to combat terrorism around the globe.”
