Last week, during the Town of Oyster Bay’s annual memorial ceremony in remembrance of the victims of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, officials unveiled a new 9/11 Walls of Honor in memory of those who have lost their lives to 9/11-related cancer and illnesses since that fateful day. The ceremony was held at the September 11th Memorial located at TOBAY Beach.
