Cold Spring Firefighters and their families spent 9/11/11 remembering the events of ten years past and the victims and heroes who lost their lives on that day and in the subsequent days and years since, defending our country.
The day began with a Memorial Service at McConville Park’s “Freedom Garden” where a wreath was laid by members of the Cold Spring Fire Company near a piece of steel recovered from the World Trade Center. In attendance were numerous firefighters, police officers, members of the VFW, soldiers, politicians and members of the community who listened to a brief memorial service and words by Putnam County Sheriff Donald Smith.
Later in the day members of Cold Spring Fire Company gathered at the pavilion at Mayor’s Park for a Family Day Picnic, where over fifty firefighters and their families enjoyed some great barbeque and entertainment. The picnic was a much welcomed “thank you” to all of our volunteer firefighters – and especially their families – who sacrifice so much in their daily lives to protect our community.
