Thanks to everyone who pulled together to welcome the representatives of the Terry Farrell Foundation terryfund.org and “the steel” from the World Trade Center. A brief but memorable ceremony commemorated the 10th anniversary of the events of September 11, 2001 and the law enforcement officers, firefighters, and EMS medics who lost their lives that day.
Special thanks to the following:
- Seth Komansky, who masterminded the event and worked hard to make it happen.
- Jeff Hammerstein, who did his usual PIO excellence and served as Master of Ceremonies
- Chris Gherardi and Patrick O’Boyle, who joined with the RPD Honor Guard to present the colors
Raleigh Police Department, which provided an escort to the “the steel” and whose honor guard members participated in the presentation of the colors
- Raleigh Fire Department, which turned out a platoon of uniformed firefighters to attend and support the event
- Chris Mogensen of the Wake & District Public Safety Pipes and Drums, who provided the music for the event.
- Board of County Commissioners Chairman Paul Coble and State Fire Marshal Wayne Goodwin, both of who spoke to those assembled, welcoming the Foundation members to Wake County and North Carolina, and reminding us all of the appreciation our communities have for those who protect and service.
- Commissioner Coble’s remarks recalled his personal contact with the World Trade Center, both before and after 9/11.
Last, we recognize the members of our service who were members of the New York City EMS community on September 11, 2011:
- Chris Gherardi
- Seth Komansky
- Glen Daniels
- Rich Pomerantz
Thanks again for your support of the Terry Farrell Foundation, and for what you do every day in support of the citizens of Wake County.
