Wednesday, September 11th, 2019 marks the 18th anniversary of the terrorist attacks that took the lives of thousands. It is hard to believe so much time has past since the memories of that fateful morning feel recent for so many of us.
To honor the victims, we will be holding two events on the anniversary in observance and reflection. I will be speaking at the service in Cos Cob. Other elected officials and religious leaders in the community will be in attendance as well. We will also pay tribute to the 32 victims with ties to Greenwich:
