Countless people have also died since the Sept. 11 attacks due to illnesses attributed to the cleanup efforts at Ground Zero.

The public will gather at the town’s Sept. 11 memorial site on North Avenue at East Broad Street for this year's ceremony. It begins at 7 p.m.

Local clergy will offer prayers of commemoration, the town announced. The presentation of a ceremonial wreath will follow along with the honor guard’s playing “Taps,” the town said.

Each year, the ceremony concludes with a period of silent reflection and show of community support.
