Family of 9/11 victim upset over the September 11th date of Ramsey Day
One couple who lost their son in the World Trade Center attacks is upset that the borough will be holding its annual Ramsey Day on September 11th.
Paul and Nassima Wachtler say September 11th should be reserved for remembering those who died in the attack on America, not family fun. Borough officials say Ramsey Day has always been held on the first Saturday after Labor Day. They say changing the date this year would conflict with other scheduled activities.
Some neighbors agree with the Wachtlers and say that day would be more appropriate for people to remember what happened on 9/11 and not run around playing games.
The Wachtlers say they will spend September 11th in Hackensack at a blood drive being held in their son's name. The drive is from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Bergen County Republican Headquarters. They also plan on visiting their son's grave in Connecticut.
