WESTPORT - The ninth annual Sept. 11 memorial ceremony was held in Westport today.

The ceremony was held at the site of the state's official memorial to the victims at Sherwood Island State Park.

Officials say the location was chosen because on a clear day, one could see the World Trade Center site from that spot.

Organizers say although Gov. Jodi Rell (R-Conn.) attended the event, they wanted to keep it low-key so that the families and close friends of the victims could draw strength from each other in a very intimate atmosphere.
