The town is planning to commemorate the 12th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks in front of Weston Town Hall.

Town officials, speakers, clergy, and the public will gather in what First Selectman Gayle Weinstein hopes is a hopeful, positive remembrance ceremony, that still acknowledges the solemnity of the anniversary.

Beginning at 8:30 a.m., there will be music and brief words interspersed with moments of silence. The ceremony is expected to last about a half hour.

Anyone who is interested in formally participating may call Judy DeVito at town hall at 203-222-2656. The public is welcome to simply show up.

The ceremony will include a placement of flowers and a reading of the names of the “six sons of Weston” — sons of families who lived in town at the time — who died at the World Trade Center in 2001.

Those names — Scott Coleman, Keith Coleman, Robert Jordan, Glenn Kirwin, Robert Lawrence Jr. and Bradley Vadas — are memorialized in the granite bench in front of town hall, where the Sept. 11 ceremony takes place.

In case of rain, the event will be moved inside town hall.
