September 11th, 2010 marked the ninth year since the tragic events of September 11th, 2001 shook the world. Due to Secaucus' close proximity to New York City, many community members work there, and sadly, many of them lost their lives on September 11th, 2001. As a tribute to their lives and to all the lives that were lost that day, a memorial service was held in front of the Secaucus Public Library and the Business Resource Center on Paterson Plank Road. Members from Swamibapa Pipe Band led the United States armed forces members and police officers in the memorial procession. Many community members and friends and families who had lost loved ones had gathered for the services.
