A ceremony to remember September 11, 2001 was held Thursday night in the front of the Wrentham 9/11 Memorial. The brief gathering was organized and led by members of Wrentham Boy Scout Troop 131 and included members of Wrentham's emergency responders. The Scouts marched onto the Town Hall's lawn, the home to the 9/11 Memorial, presented the American Flag and led the crowd in the Pledge of Allegiance. Members of Wrentham Police and Fire lined the brick path in front of the memorial. In addition to the placing of the wreath, a moment of silence was held, followed by the playing of God Bless America.
"This is a tragedy we can not forgot," said Boy Scout Ryan Skinner, the service's only speaker. "May it never happen again."
This was the third year Wrentham held a ceremony next to the town's 9/11 Memorial. In 2012, the memorial was dedicated after Boy Scout Troy Neubecker led a town-wide campaign to raise funds for its construction. Since its unveiling, the Boy Scouts have continued to hold annual ceremonies in honor of the victims of 9/11.
