Monday, September 11, 2023 will mark the largest day of volunteerism in the history of the Buffalo Naval & Military Park. Around 130 National Grid employees will partake in day-long activities to kick off the 9/11 Day of Service, including welding, removing rust, running electrical wire, and painting the historic vessels.
They’ll be joined by staff from Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield of Western New York and Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus, bringing the total number of volunteers to around 150. We are so grateful for their support and look forward to seeing all of the work they accomplish at the Naval Park.
The Buffalo Naval Park will host a 9/11 ceremony in the Hangar Building at 11:30 AM that is free and open to the public. The ships and submarine will be closed on September 11, but the gift shop will remain open from 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM.
