Last Chance: Contribute to Commack's 9/11 Memorial

Residents must place orders for 9/11 pavers leading to new memorial by May 1.

The Sept. 11 attacks had a profound impact on Commack community as many lost friends, family and loved ones that day. What better way to pay tribute to their lives and memories than a few touching words in stone? 

Commack residents have until Tuesday to place their orders for memorial pavers that will be used to construct a pathway to the future 9/11 memorial being build at 's Heroes Memorial Field. 

For $50, residents can purchase a granite paver and order it to be engraved with up to three lines of text at 15 letters each. The pavers can be engraved with the names of individuals, non-profit organizations and heartfelt sentiments, and are not intended for advertising or corporate names. Commack school officials have reserved the right to refuse any non-conforming inscriptions. 

Commack school officials have promised that for each paver purchase, the Commack Educational Foundation will donate $20 to either the FealGood Foundation, which aids 9/11 survivors and their families, or the Twin Towers Orphan Fund. 

The Commack School District has received a piece of steel from the World Trade Center, and is in the process of constructing a 9-11 memorial on the grounds of Commack High School. The dedication of the memorial will take place on Sept. 11, 2012 during the district's.

All orders must be delivered to Debbie Virga at Burr Intermediate School by May 1. To place an order, see the attached pdf.
