The city of Gloucester has decided it will not be one of the scores of cities and towns across the state and the nation that will hold public ceremonies to mark the twelfth anniversary of the September 11th attacks.
The fire chief in Gloucester said city officials talked about it, but decided against holding any public ceremony. Instead, a private moment of silence will take place to honor fallen first responders.
Until this year, Gloucester firefighters have hosted yearly public memorials dedicated to the victims of the attacks.
