Burlington County will mark the 20th Anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks with a Remembrance Ceremony featuring keynote addresses from two of New Jersey’s most outstanding first responders and leaders.
The Burlington County Commissioners announced the details of the upcoming ceremony and called on all Burlington County residents to take time on the anniversary to remember and honor those who were lost, as well as the families and loved ones left behind.
The ceremony will be held at 11 AM outside the Burlington County Emergency Services Training Center in Westampton, where a piece of steel recovered from the fallen World Trade Center is displayed. It will feature a bagpipe processional, wreath laying and the reading of the names and biographies of seven victims who resided in the county or had strong ties here.
The ceremony will be open to the public. However, seating will be limited.
Learn about various species that call Burlington County Parks home! Every other Wednesday, Naturalist Kate will post a new video on our Nature Programs Page that highlights a local species to better understand their behaviors, natural history and/or significance in the environment. This month will focus on monarch butterflies and eastern cottontails.
This exhibit, Causa sui (pronounced kau?. sa 's?. i) is a Latin term relating to a philosophical hypothesis denoting that something is self-generating or self-creating. Artist Jaquie Solimeo offers her take on abstract painting and what makes her love it so much. As imperfect humans, she thinks that we can feel so aware of that imperfection that the process of creation and expression like art can be tainted. When Jaquie sees art that she carefully planned, created and recreated, and toiled over, it seems ugly because what she really sees is this all-consuming battle against imperfection. Her experience with abstract art, however, is that it's almost as if it creates itself. There’s no plan, no expectation, no anxiety…and in the end when she looks at it, she finally sees art and beauty.
