A memorial ceremony marked the twentieth anniversary of the September 11 attacks at the Sandwich Fair Saturday morning. It featured the ringing of the bell to memorialize the first responders who died in the attacks and the playing of "Amazing Grace" on the bagpipes.
Among the local dignitaries to speak at the ceremony was Sandwich Mayor Todd Latham who says that it's the job of those who lived through the September 11 attacks to teach those who aren't old enough to remember.
Sandwich Fire Protection District Fire Chief Derek Hagerty says he made a pledge to ensure that people remember September 11.
The ceremony also took time to honor those who have died fighting in the War on Terror. An empty table was set to symbolize the families waiting for loved ones to come home.
The Star Spangled Banner and God Bless America were sung by the Sandwich High School Choir.
