A memorial service was held in Westport to commemorate the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. The ceremony was held at the state's 9/11 memorial at Sherwood Island State Park Thursday evening. Hundreds of victims' families, state officials and friends attended the hourlong ceremony, which culminated in the guests visiting the memorial where the names of the state's victims are engraved. After the ceremony, many of the guests walked to the memorial to place roses on the commemorative stones.
