[ARCHIVED] Wellesley Remembers Sept. 11

US Flag Backlit

Community leaders, first responders and families gathered for the Town of Wellesley's annual September 11th Memorial Observance. 

A ceremony at Wellesley Fire Department Headquarters on Route 9 marked the events of 18 years ago that forever changed our community and our country.

The remembrance honored the 2,977 civilians and first responders who died in New York City, Washington D.C., and Shanksville, Pennsylvania. 

Four Wellesley residents lost their lives in the terrorist attacks. Their names - Neilie Casey, Edmund Glaser, Patrick Quigley, and John Cahill - were read aloud during the ceremony. 

Flags flew at half-staff and the Wellesley Police and Fire Honor Guard stood at attention as the fire station bell tolled.  

Speakers shared prayers for those in the line of duty and service, remarks honoring those who died or were injured, and hopes for strength and comfort for those who survived. 

The Town also remembered U.S. Army veteran Richard (Dick) Dillon, former Wellesley Veteran's Services director, who planned past September 11th ceremonies. Dillon died in July 2019.
