Family Member Feedback is Requested



As the calendar shifts from July to August, we recognize that September, too, will soon be upon us.  From the member e-mails, phone calls, and written feedback we have received, we know this is a particularly trying time for all family members.

We are writing because we need your assistance.  Throughout the country and overseas, plans are being developed to commemorate the events of September 11, 2001.  We expect that events being planned in some cities will be well publicized, and others less so.  If at all possible, can you please e-mail Paige Panzner, our Program Director, at ppanzner@familiesofseptember11.org or call her at 212-575-1878 and let her know of any memorial and/or commemoration activities being planned in your area?  We would like to collect this information and share it with our 2,000 members worldwide.  We are certain that your update will help other families in your area, as they may not be aware of events happening in their region. 

One of our greatest strengths as a 9/11 family advocacy organization is our ability to connect family members and provide updates quickly.  With your contribution, we can continue to enhance the membership network and support one another - especially at this difficult time of year.

Thank you for your time and consideration.  Please send us commemoration updates soon.  Take care.
