Hartel Avenue remembers 9/11 anniversary

 

The residents of the 3400 block of Hartel Ave. remembered the 20th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks at their block party on Saturday.

Residents wore T-shirts marking the theme: 9/11: Never Forget.

Houses and lawns were decorated with American flags and balloons, and DJ Marco played patriotic songs.

Residents thank local businesses for donating door prizes. State Rep. Joe Hohenstein attended and brought water ice and soft pretzels. State Sen. Tina Tartaglione and City Councilman Bobby Henon donated water ice, and Henon staffer Paul Ragan arranged for the sanitation department to collect trash a day early so it wasn’t sitting curbside during the party. ••
