The City of Rye held is annual September 11th Commemoration Ceremony on Sunday afternoon. The light rain brought the ceremony inside the Rye Fire Department’s Locust Avenue headquarters.
The ceremony drew lighter crowds than last year’s 20th anniversary of the tragedy, but the moment, the remembrances and the recognition 9/11’s meaning remain more important than ever.
