The tragic events of Sept. 11, 2001 have always cut especially deep for the people of Tewksbury. Two residents, Peter Hashem and Peter Gay, lost their lives aboard American Airlines flight 11.
On Friday, at 7 p.m., the town will once again mark the anniversary of the terrorist attacks that resulted in the deaths of nearly 3,000 people.
The ceremony will take place at the Tewksbury 9/11 Memorial in front of the Tewksbury Public Library at Main and Chandler Streets. The event is organized each year by the Tewksbury 9-11 Memorial Committee.
Participants will include the Tewksbury Fire Department and Tewksbury Police Department honor guards and Tewksbury High School marching band. Larissa Gay, daughter of Peter Gay, will once again speak, as she has at each of the previous 13 ceremonies. Police Chief Timothy Sheehan will also speak, and the names of the 93 victims from Massachusetts will be read off.
