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.
