The events of September 11, 2001 impacted not only our country, but also our community. On that day, the Town of Sudbury lost three beloved residents – Cora Holland, Peter Goodrich, and Geoffrey Cloud. Our community vowed never to forget the lives of these residents or the tragic events of September 11th.
On September 11, 2003, the Town of Sudbury proudly dedicated the September 11 Memorial Garden. The Memorial Garden features flowering plants and trees, three bluestone benches, and a commemorative center stone of Sudbury granite, where engraved bronze plaques recount the events of September 11, 2001 and memorialize the three Sudbury residents who were lost.
This stunning landmark is designed to be a peaceful and beautiful place where town residents can reflect on the impact that solemn September day had on our nation and our community of Sudbury.
It is the intention of the Selectmen, in creating the September 11 Memorial Garden Oversight Committee, to provide a mechanism for protecting, maintaining, and enhancing the Memorial Garden and the adjacent flagpole now and into the future, using funds in the newly created September 11 Memorial Garden Trust Fund. All monies from the initial fund-raising shall be used to create this new Trust Fund, and the entire trust shall be considered “expendable” for the purposes of accomplishing the mission of this Oversight Committee.
