Wednesday marks the 12th anniversary of 9/11. Remember those who lost their lives with a memorial observance ceremony in town.
Meet at the Wellesley Fire Department Headquarters on Worcester Street at 9:45 a.m. Wednesday for the memorial observance.
"I recommend you get there around 9:30 a.m. and it lasts about an hour," Veterans Services Officer Stanley Spear said.
The fire chief will welcome attendants and do the introductions. There will be a tolling of the fire station bell, reflections on 9/11 by the selectmen, various prayers read, musical entertainment, taps and more.
"It's to remember the tragedy that happened 12 years ago," Spear said of the ceremony.
He went on to say that it was "probably the worst tragedy that happened in this country since pearl harbor."
"It's important that we have the ceremony," he said. "It's nice that people show up, but it's important that we have the ceremony."
