SPRING LAKE — A new 9/11 memorial will be unveiled this year on the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attacks in honor of all those who died.

The memorial, designed by Hal Hall of H.T. Hall Monuments, will feature two granite towers resembling the twin towers, with a donated steel beam in the center and a plaque dedicated to all the victims of the attacks.

A ceremony will be held on Saturday, Sept. 11 at 6 p.m. on the oceanfront next to the existing memorial at Remsen, Pitney and Ocean avenues. The ceremony will include bagpipers and Karen Phillips singing the national anthem. Tim Mahoney, organizer of the Sept. 11 Memorial Run, and other participants will run from Belmar to Spring Lake to read the names of the 147 Monmouth County residents who perished in the attacks.
