On Sunday, September 10th, the Stratham Fire Department will be holding a dedication ceremony for the new 9/11 Memorial built by Eagle Scout Tyler Denton this past spring.  The event will start at 11 am with some time to see the monument followed by a motorcycle charity ride-by event put on by the Patriot Riders of America, NH Chapter who has asked Stratham to be part of this event that raises funds for organizations that help veterans, military and first responders in need.  This will take place at 11:30 am to about 11:40 am.   A short dedication ceremony will then be held to officially dedicate this monument which includes a piece of steel from the Twin Towers that fell that day.  We hope that this will be a place for all  to remember the sacrifices that were made that day, September 11, 2001.
