Milford's September 11 ceremony to take place at YMCA Sunday

The City of Milford will remember the events of September 11, 2001 on Sunday, Sept. 11, 2016 with a ceremony at 8:30 a.m. and ringing of the bells at 8:46 a.m., the time the first plane struck New York’s World Trade Center.

Fire Chief Douglas Edo will ring the bell.  

The ceremony will take place at the Woodruff Family YMCA, 631 Orange Avenue, where the Milford Prevention Council will co-host a September 11 remembrance ceremony honoring real-life superheroes, followed by a 5K and Family Day.

The Milford community remembers victims Michael Miller and Avnish Patel, both graduates of Live Oaks School, as well as Seth Morris, who was a student at Mathewson School.  

Mayor Ben Blake invites all residents to attend the ceremony and asks everyone to take a moment to pause and remember those who died, and those who participated in rescue efforts on that tragic day.
