Event overview

Come join us at picturesque Governors Island for memorial BBQ on 9/13 overlooking the Statue of Liberty and the Freedom Tower to remember 9/11. We will remember that fateful day and celebrate the values that untied us to meet the challenges that day brought us with our friends. In order to get in the island you will need to take the ferry from either Manhattan or Brooklyn. Tickets must be acquired online. The ferry is free for former and active service members or if you get on the ferry before noon. It's only 3 dollars otherwise. Link to the Governors Island
