Below are some pictures from our visit to Ground Zero prior to the Dinner Dance. The Borough of Fair Lawn arranged a special visit for our Wounded Hero CPL David Bixler. Mayor Cosgrove, Town Manager Metzler and FLPD Lt. Kneer accompanied David and Adopt-a-Soldier Platoon on an amazing tour of Ground Zero, the 9/11 Memorial and even the inside of the Freedom Tower! Thank you Fair Lawn!!!!
