Remembrance, fellowship and peace were the messages of the evening as the Town of Greenwich remembered and honored those lost on September 11th, 2001.
First Selectmen of the Town of Greenwich Peter Tesei said "These victims were fathers, sons, mothers, daughters, husbands, wives, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, friends and our neighbors. They were part of the Greenwich community and each year we vow to pay our respect to each of them and the lives they lived and shared with our community."
Commander of the Greenwich American Legion Post 29 and Chairman of the Greenwich Sept. 11 Remembrance Committee Christopher Hughes said "And to the family members who have joined us tonight - please know that the entire Town of Greenwich stands with you."
Hughes added "We lost 29 people and their families are still here. We want them to know that whether 100 years passes or 200, we're still thinking about them, we're still behind them and no one can rewrite history or lessen the impact of that day."
Members of the Greenwich Fire Department, Greenwich Police Department and Greenwich Emergency Medical Services also honored their fallen comrades with a special salute during the ceremony.
