Geneva 9/11 Ceremony at Long Pier Today


Several ceremonies will be held today to mark the 22nd anniversary of the Sept. 11th, 2001, attacks. There will be ceremonies in Auburn, Geneva, Ovid, and Manchester-Shortsville. 

In Auburn, the bell atop Auburn’s Memorial City Hall will chime six times this morning as part of a wreath-laying ceremony to commemorate the events of September 11th, 2001. Members of the city’s fire, police, and ambulance departments will be on hand to place a wreath at the 9/11 memorial on the south lawn of City Hall. 

In Geneva the ceremony takes place at the foot of Long Pier in Lakefront Park. A number of dignitaries will speak at the ceremony, and the city Fire Department’s Color Guard will participate. Many city offices will be closed from 9:45-11 a.m. so employees can attend the ceremony.



In Ovid, the Fire Department invites Seneca County and all Finger Lakes Communities to view the annual September 11th March/Walk of Remembrance down Main Street and Brown Street to the Ovid Fire Department Memorial. The March/Walk begins tonight at 7:00pm at the South Seneca High School. The ceremony will immediately follow at the Firefighter’s Memorial and the Village of Ovid Pavilion.

The Manchester and Shortsville Fire Departments will meet this morning at 8:30 a.m. at the Manchester Fire Department. The event will feature NYPD Detective Mike Menikotz, who will be sharing what he experienced on that tragic day. Additional speeches will also be made by Shortsville Fire Chief Jason Wagner and Ontario County Sheriff Dave Cirencione.
