Among others in attendance will be family members of 9-11 victims; elected officials from Greenwich and the state; religious leaders; and members of the community’s first responder organizations.
The names of victims with ties to Greenwich will be read aloud during the service.
The event at the Glenville Volunteer Fire Company will begin at 7 p.m. The event will start with a welcome from the Glenville Volunteer Fire Company, followed by a Presentation of the Colors, the Pledge of Allegiance, singing of the National Anthem, and an invocation. There will be a presentation of a wreath at the 9-11 Steel Memorial, which is a permanent display in front of the fire house. The ceremony will conclude with a benediction and retreat of the colors.
