Parish remembers Katrina, 9/11
|Thelezia Folse/Herald Guide|
Officers who were present at ground zero were saluted at the Remembrance Day event.
The keynote address was given by Lieutenant Governor Jay Dardenne. Also in attendance were a fireman from the Boston Fire Department and two fire fighters from the New York Fire Department, who were all present at ground zero.
"I thought the ceremony was very moving and an appropriate tribute to the lives lost during two events our generation will always remember — 9/11 and Hurricane Katrina," said Parish President V.J. St. Pierre. "The personal testimonials of some of the first responders really made the event special."
