Press Release
Media is welcome to attend, RSVP to Bill Doyle



An American Quilt, labor of love and commitment set for dedication to 9/11 families



Americas 9-11 Memorial Quilts Organization is an ongoing effort since the attacks of 9/11, a product of immeasurable commitment and compassion by thousands of citizens across the country that united together in a common cause, keeping alive the memory, life and legacy of each victim as they offer compassionate support, friendship and kindness to families left behind. Americas 9-11 Victims Memorial Quilt, a monumental memorial measuring 10 ft tall and 60 ft long, includes the faces and names of every individual who perished in the attacks along with 4 smaller memorial quilts scheduled to be dedicated to the FDNY, EMS, New York State Courts, and Port Authority.



Members of the organization have devoted nearly 5 years in creating the memorial quilts; many will meet on Sept 8th for the first time since the organization was founded on Sept 14, 2001. The organizations founder, Jeannie Ammermann was responsible for the outreach to families to obtain a photo they would like included on the quilts.



Members from across the country will travel to New York to attend the dedication ceremony and will be available to answer questions regarding the memorial quilt project.



A public showing of the five quilts will take place on Sept 8th at the Marriott Financial Center Grand Ballroom, 85 West Street, NYC, between the hours of 4:00pm- 9:00pm.



The formal dedication ceremony is scheduled for September 9, 2006, between the hours of 9:00am- 3:00pm at the Marriott Financial Center, Grand Ballroom, 85 West Street, New York City, and will be closed to the public. The Victims Memorial Quilt will remain at the Marriott Financial Center and will be included at the Annual 9-11 Family Forum hosted by Voices of Sept 11th and again on Sept 11th for Voices of Sept 11th Commemorative Luncheon.



Bill Doyle, will accept the Victims Memorial Quilt on behalf of 9-11 families. Bill lost his son Joey on 9/11, yet beyond his own personal grief and loss, drew great strength in supporting thousands of other families who desperately needed direction following the loss of their sons, daughters, parents, or siblings. Bill Doyle became a mentor and confidant and did so on many different levels in such a way that most families came to steadily rely on him. His strength, commitment and resolute is infinite.

We are honored that he will accept the memorial quilt on behalf of the families of 9-11. Together, the families of 9-11 will ensure proper preservation of America’s 9-11 Victims’ Memorial Quilt. This small gift to the families of September 11, 2001, comes from the heart and soul of America.
