This Wednesday marks 18 years since the deadly terror attacks on September 11, in 2001. To commemorate the day, there are many events planned not only around the country but also in the Capital Region.
New York City will be a focal point for those remembrances with a solemn ceremony planned to honor the hundreds killed on that terrible day. That ceremony is set to take place in Manhattan at the 9/11 Memorial Plaza.
In the Capital Region, the town of Halfmoon will hold a Patriot Day Ceremony at Abele Memorial Park. Harris Road will be blocked off as emergency responders make a procession to the ceremony. That event will start at 6 p.m.
In Glenville, the Waters Edge Lighthouse will hold its annual tribute ceremony at its Memorial Site. For the 12th year in a row the locals will pay their respects on the banks of the Mohawk River. This event starts at 5 p.m.
The New York State Museum in Albany will host a 35-minute webinar called "9/11 Anniversary in the Schools." Staff from The National September 11 Memorial & Museum will join with students, teachers, and guest speakers online to share first hand stories about the attacks.
This program will be available online throughout the day at the New York State Museum website.
