Each year, the state holds a ceremony at Sherwood Island State Park, the site of Connecticut's official 9/11 living memorial. http://www.ct.gov/dep/cwp/view.asp?A=2716&Q=383810
The ceremony will be held at 5:30 p.m. and Gov. M. Jodi Rell will be among those attending the service. This ceremony comes four days before the ninth anniversary of the attacks.
The names of the victims are engraved on granite tiles at the memorial site, which is along Long Island Sound and includes a view of the Manhattan skyline.
Many towns in the state are holding their own ceremonies later in the week.
