Town to honor 9/11 victims, responders
Milford, Rotary plan ceremonies
MILFORD – The town of Milford and the Milford Rotary Club are planning ceremonies for Sunday, Sept. 11, to honor all those who lost their lives as a result of the terror attacks that occurred 15 years ago.
In particular, Milford will pay homage to the memory of the hundreds of firefighters, law enforcement officers and emergency services personnel who died Sept. 11, 2001, as well as members of the armed forces who protect freedom today.
The event will begin at 8 a.m., and will be held in conjunction with the Rotary’s 48th annual Pancake Breakfast. The breakfast will be held until noon in the fire station at 39 School St. with the help of the Milford Fire Department.
All donations at the door will go directly to the Milford Fireman’s Relief Association, with sponsorship proceeds supporting Milford Rotary’s charitable giving program.
Ceremonies on the bandstand will be led by Town Moderator Peter Basiliere. They will include a presentation of the colors by Milford Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 4368, the Pledge of Allegiance, an invocation by emergency services chaplain Gary Williams and a patriotic sing-along aided by the Souhegan Valley Chorus.
