NEW YORK MILLS/NEWPORT, N.Y.-There were 9/11 Memorial Ceremonies going on all across our viewing area, and NewsChannel 2 went to two of them Wednesday evening.

NewsChannel 2 crews visited New York Mills and Newport.

In New York Mills, it was the 18th annual 9/11 memorial. The ceremony started with the silent parade from the New York Mills Firehouse to the Twin Towers Memorial site on Main Street in the Village.

New York Mills Fire Chief Rick Ulinski says the phrase “We Will Never Forget” comes to life in the Village every year.

"We've got a lot of citizens here participating in the ceremony every year.” Ulinski said. “And we're very pleased to hold this ceremony and honored to have it. A lot of parallels there, a lot of innocent people were murdered by surprise attack and the only thing we can do right now is defend our country and honor those who have fallen.” Ulinski added.

In Newport, citizens gathered at the firehouse there to honor the victims who died on 9/11.

People who attended were given candles, which were lit and then blown out. A wreath was also presented by first responders who attended.

Like New York Mills, Newport has been holding the ceremony since the September 11th attacks happened 18 years ago.

Leslie F Crossett, the Department of NY Legion 1524 Commander’s Aide told NewsChannel 2 that the event gets better every year and there is a good reason why.

"We expand on it. The reason for that is because we can never, never forget what happened and we need to remind the public the reasons why we come, and the reasons why our soldiers, our EMTs, our fireman, our police serve everyday." Crossett said.

Both ceremonies were attended by dozens of people.
