MEMORABLE SEPTEMBER 11TH IN JUNO BEACH
On September 11th, 2022 the Town of Juno Beach came together and remembered the sacrifices of U.S. citizens, first-responders and service members, on the day that is forever burned into our hearts and minds.
While the observance, often known as Patriot Day, was minimized for the last two years due to Covid, this year's event saw an attendance exceeding 150 and was very memorable. Several FDNY and NYPD active and former members were noted among the many attendees.
Participants from the Juno Beach Police Department, Palm Beach County Fire Rescue, the Juno Beach Civic Association and the event sponsor, the Juno Beach Police Foundation, all came together at 9:00 AM. They were welcomed by Chief of Police Brian Smith and the Mayor. Police Department Chaplain, Reverend Emily Denmark McGee, opened the event with an invocation and a brief prayer remembering both the victims of 9/11 and the survivors. Police Major Paul Fertig led those in attendance in the Pledge of Allegiance to a massive flag flown from a fire department ladder truck.
Palm Beach County Commissioner Maria Marino spoke quite eloquently of “The moment in our history when this nation as we knew it changed forever.” We were reminded that in the years since 9/11, hundreds of thousands of American troops have served around the world to deny terrorists a safe haven and to protect the American people.
As attendees from all walks of life grieved for family, friends, coworkers, and strangers, our community once again pledged to commemorate and support our nation, vowing to Never Forget.
MEET THE NEWEST MEMBER OF OUR POLICE DEPARTMENT
On September 28th, at the regular Town Council Meeting, Town Clerk Caitlin Copeland-Rodriguez swore in the newest member of the Juno Beach Police Department, Officer John Rossini.
In his introductions by Chief of Police Brian Smith, it was noted that Officer Rossini served the Massachusets State Police for over 16 years. He brings to Juno Beach a wealth of experience in several different areas of law-enforcement and the agency looks forward to his skills and experience.
The Police Foundation joins the members of the Department in welcoming Officer John Rossini to the Juno Beach Police Department.
