GREENFIELD — Last year, Bob Workman, Greenfield Veterans Honor Guard commander and county veterans service officer, found out at the last minute not much was being planned to honor those lost during the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. After quickly organizing a brief ceremony at Veterans Park, he decided things would be different this year.
“We found out on Friday (Sept. 7, 2012) that no one was really doing anything, and I thought, that’s not right,” Workman said Monday. “This year, I just thought we should put something together for the community and the community’s veterans to remember those lost on 9/11.”
So, this Patriot Day, beginning at 10:38 a.m., the precise moment the North Tower of the World Trade Center began crumbling into what would become known as Ground Zero, Greenfield will have a remembrance program at the Hancock County Veterans Park at the corner of South and State streets.
