Today, the Juno Beach Police Foundation made a significant announcement as they stepped up to once again sponsor the 2023 Town of Juno Beach September 11th Remembrance Ceremony.
Every year, the Foundation helps organize a special event at the Town’s Ocean Drive monument, which was beautifully designed by the acclaimed environmental graphic and industrial designer, Mark Fuller. The location is close to Town Hall and the Juno Police Headquarters. The event’s main goal is to express compassion, peace, and tranquility. The visual elements of the monument, including graphic imagery and materials and are incredibly inviting, positive, and create a warm and welcoming atmosphere for everyone.
The ceremony is scheduled for 9:00 a.m. on Monday, September 11th. The event will commence with an invocation, followed by a moment of silence, guided by our two esteemed Police Chaplains: Reverend Emily McGee, Pastor of the Juno Beach United Methodist Church, and Rabbi Berel Namdar of the Chabad of Singer Island.
Monique McCall a nationally renowned country music singer, song writer & recording artist currently living in North Palm Beach will kick off the program with an unforgettable performance of one of her hit collaborations, “No better place” which she just re-recorded and released. Her last single “2nd Chance” peaked at #21 on The New Music Hot 100 Radio Chart and was in consideration for a Grammy Nomination.
Join us as Juno Beach Mayor, Alex Cooke, introduces Sergeant Scott Bresalier, a former Nassau County NY Police Officer who served on the hallowed grounds of 9/11. Sergeant Bresalier will deliver a powerful speech on “The moment in our history when this nation as we knew it changed forever.” This is an event you won’t want to miss – be there to hear a firsthand account that will leave you speechless and forever moved!
In a solemn conclusion, Juno Beach Chief of Police Brian Smith, who himself played a vital role in the September 11th recovery effort as a member of the New York City Police Department (NYPD), will deliver the closing remarks, reflecting on the gravity of the day.
As we near the end of the ceremony, the atmosphere will be filled with reverence as Monique McCall graces us once again with her deeply moving and widely acclaimed musical rendition of the National Anthem evoking emotions of remembrance and unity.
Before and after the ceremony, in a moment of quiet reflection, the Bagel Boyz restaurant on Donald Ross Road will offer attendees the opportunity to gather and share in a somber, yet comforting, atmosphere with free coffee and light breakfast food in the Town Hall parking lot. It’s a gesture of solidarity and comfort during this solemn occasion.
