MILFORD -- The city will remember the events of Sept. 11, 2001, with a virtual ceremony on Facebook and YouTube at 8:46 a.m., Friday, the time the first plane struck New York’s World Trade Center.

The event, to be hosted by Mayor Ben Blake, Fire Chief Douglas Edo, and Police Chief Keith Mello, will feature remarks from state Sen. James Maroney, and state Reps. Charles Ferraro, and Kathy Kennedy.

“In Milford, we remember victims Michael Miller and Avnish Patel, both graduates of Live Oaks School, as well as Seth Morris, who was a student at Mathewson School,” Milford mayoral assistant Justin Rosen said.

“Mayor Blake invites all residents to virtually attend the ceremony and to take a moment of pause and remembrance in honor of those who died and those who participated in rescue efforts on that tragic day.”
