As we approach the 11th anniversary of 9/11, a day that will never, ever be forgotten,  Americans honor those who lost their lives that day.  There are several events happening in our area in honor of that tragic day.

The Annual Prayer Breakfast hosted by the Genesis Group happens as 7:30 at Hart's Hill Inn.  You do need a reservation, so call 792-7187.  They'll be collecting non-perishable food items for vets.

At 9:15 am, there will be a wreath- laying ceremony at the Utica 9/11 Monument,  Sherman Drive and Culver Ave.

Also at 9:30, Herkimer County Community College will have a wreath-laying rememberance ceremony.

The names of the NYC firefighters who died on 9/11 will be read at the Firemen and Police Memorial on the Parkway in Utica.  That starts at noon.

The 11th annual 9/11 Ceremony in New York Mills starts at the Fire House at 5:40pm.  The Silent March goes to the 9/11 Memorial at 320 Main Street and all those attending are encouraged to carry an American flag.  Refreshments will be served after the march.
