A solemn 9-11 Memorial Ceremony was held Thursday, September 11, 2003 at the Fireman's Memorial (Boulevard/Circle)   The program was presented by The Clergy of Hasbrouck Heights and Mayor William J. Torre. Local veterans & scouts provided the Honor Guard.

Prior to the service, a Candlelight Procession began 7:00 p.m. at Corpus Christi Church,   then proceeded along Kipp to walk south on Burton,  where they were joined with groups from First Reformed Church, St. John The Divine Episcopal Church, Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, First United Methodist and Euclid School. The full procession then marched down Passaic to the Circle.

Following the Candle Light Walk to the Circle, Mayor William Torre led a 20 minute service which began with the Pledge of Allegiance and the community singing the National Anthem.

The Invocation was led by Rev. Joseph Pickard (Fire Department Chaplain).

There was a dedication of  the Memorial Plaque. Members of the Robert C. Miller family were recognized by the mayor, who said that a tree would be planted at the New Municipal complex in Mr. Miller's memory.  Paul Carris attended [Angles Walk Among Us].

At selected moments during the service  Michael Higgins played the Bag Pipes during the Procession and Service.
