As I am sure you are aware, the City of Bayonne has constructed the Harbor View Park at the Peninsula at Bayonne Harbor. The park is the home of Bayonne’s September 11 memorial. “To the Struggle Against World Terrorism,” which was designed by world-renowned artist Zurab Tsereteli, and donated to the City of Bayonne by the people of Russia. The memorial has a direct line of sight to the location of the World Trade Center.
The September 11 Bayonne Remembers Committee, in conjunction with the City of Bayonne, has established a paving stone program. The pavers make up the walkway in the park. The program will enable you to be a part of Bayonne’s history by having an engraved paver placed at the park. The paver can be a way to emblazon your family name in history; to show your patriotism and support for our country; to remember the men and women in the Armed Forces and our veterans; to remember loved ones, family members and friends, living or deceased; or to remember a special event or time in your life. It would also be a wonderful gift. Please not that all inscriptions are subject to the approval of the September 11 Bayonne Remembers Committee.
The paver is Brussels Block, 8″ by 7″ rectangle, limestone coloring with black lettering. Each inscription may have a maximum of six lines, with more than 13 characters per line. All punctuations and spaces are considered characters. The cost is $50.00 per paver.
If you are interested in purchasing a paver, please complete an order form for each paver and return same, together with your check, to September 11 Bayonne Remembers, P.O. Box 1201, Bayonne, New Jersey, 07002. Should you have any questions, wish to see a sample paver, need additional order forms, or need to have your form and check picked up, please call the Paver Committee Co-Chairpersons, Jerry and Dolores Kelly at (201) 823-4890.
A member of the committee would be happy to attend a meeting of any organization to answer questions, show the sample paver, and receive completed order forms.
The memorial was dedicated on September 11, 2006. Please be assured that the paver program has continued since that date. Your paver will be installed as soon as possible.
Thank you for your consideration.
Very truly yours,
Frank P. Perrucci
