In addition, Milford will participate in the National Moment of Remembrance of the 10th Anniversary of September 11th. At 1 p.m. on Sunday, September 11, 2011 church bells will ring to begin a silent moment of reflection on the lives that were lost on that fateful day. Mayor Richetelli asks that all residents fly their American flags. And per a suggestion from Milford resident Nancy Cathey, all residents also are asked to place two candles in a front window representing the twin towers on Saturday, Sunday and Monday nights.
