Monday will mark the 16th anniversary since terrorists hijacked four planes over the East Coast and killed thousands of people.

The Garden of Reflection on Woodside Road in Lower Makefield is the official Pennsylvania memorial for the nearly 3,000 victims of September 11, 2001.

On Sunday evening at 7 p.m., a candlelight ceremony will be held at the Garden of Reflection.

The memorial will host a Monday morning remembrance ceremony starting at 8:30 a.m. The event will follow the chronological events of September 11th in real-time and honor the victims. Music and religious leaders will be present for the event.

At 7 p.m. Monday, the annual Remembrance in Light Candlelight Ceremony will begin. This year, the former pastor of St. Paul’s Chapel near Ground Zero in New York will speak. The church was a place of refuge for many following the attacks. The candlelight memorial is attended by more than 1,000 people and it is best to arrive early.
