A small dedication ceremony was held at Friday morning to remember those who lost their lives as a result of the 9/11 attacks in 2001.

Attended by more than 50 people, Principal Maria Andreotti and the Medford Elementary PTA dedicated a bench and memorial garden on the front lawn.

Representatives from the Patchogue-Medford School District, North Patchogue Fire Department, Sayville Fire Department, and Emergency Service Unit as well as friends and family members of the Stahlman and Maler families were present.
