Winthrop Will Honor 911 Victims and Police

The Winthrop Republican Town Committee is organizing a standout honoring 911 victims, the police, fire fighters and first responders who bravely risked their lives to protect us on September 11, and they continue to protect us everyday. The entire community is invited to participate in this common cause to honor victims and show appreciation to these brave men and women.

WRTC chair Paul Caruccio explains, “First Responders are the ordinary people doing extraordinary things who rush toward the dangers to protect us and save our lives. And the 911 victims should never be forgotten.”

Additionally, Winthrop should not forget that we lost one of our own on 9/11; Kathleen Nicosia. Kathleen was the flight attendant aboard the American Airline flight which was the first to hit the Towers. Kathleen was a life long resident of Winthrop who was quiet, friendly, sophisticated and a loving person. Kathleen left behind a devoted husband (still a Winthrop resident) and young daughter. 

The event will be held to recognize the times the attacks occurred: 8:46 a.m. and 9:02 (Twin Towers), 9:37 Pentagon, 10:03 Flight 93 crashed. The details of the standout are on Friday September 11 from 8:30-10:15 a.m. at  Belle Isle Bridge-Winthrop

Just show up at above time on 9/11 and signs will be provided.
