Town holds ceremony on Tuesday, Sept. 11

The town of Weston will commemorate the 11th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks a little differently this year.

Organizers are trying to make it a hopeful, positive remembrance ceremony while still  acknowledging the solemnity of the anniversary. The event will have more music, including solos by Adam Hill and Kristin Hahn, and several songs sung by those present.

Speakers will be limited to brief words by the first selectman and a few local clergy, interspersed with moments of silence. There will be a flag raising and the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance.

There also will be a placement of roses 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. The men are commemorated on an engraved memorial bench in front of Weston Town Hall, which is where the ceremony will take place.

The event begins at 8:30 a.m. and is expected to last no more than a half hour.
