New York club honors heroes in 9/11 anniversary remembrance

The Rotary Club of New York will commemorate the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks with a remembrance ceremony on 12 September, honoring the victims as well as the first responders who heroically spent days afterward looking for survivors.

The tribute luncheon at 11:30 a.m. at the Harvard Club will feature speeches by a New York firefighter, individuals who lost loved ones, and a representative of New York Downtown Hospital, which received a new ambulance funded by club contributions in the aftermath of the attacks.

It also will include readings of condolence and support letters from Rotarians worldwide, a screening of two tribute videos, and a harp and piano rendition of "Amazing Grace."
In the video below, members of the Rotary Club of New York recall how the club took action after the attacks on the World Trade Center ten years ago.
