Tonight, this remembrance ceremony was held at Kirkwood Town Hall.
People shared their stories, and were reacquainted with old friends and neighbors. Last year's flood caused millions of dollars in damage in Kirkwood, and destroyed more than 200 homes. The Meadows Trailer Park was shut down, after trailers were destroyed. People say the last year has been emotional. But add, they continue to move forward.
"There's been a lot of memories. I just can't. It's like bouncing up and down again but we're gonna make it. Definitely gonna make it. And we are doing it right now," said Bruce Hess of Conklin.
Town Supervisor Gordon Kniffen says the town held the memorial to show the people of Kirkwood they have not been forgotten. And the town will continue to do all it can to help.
