MONTAGUE — A short memorial ceremony for victims of the Sept. 11 attacks was held Wednesday morning outside the Montague Public Safety Complex.

About 10 residents were present, along with town emergency service workers.

The flag outside the station was put at half-mast for the ceremony, then returned to normal afterward. A bell was rung to start the ceremony, and Montague Police Chief Chris Williams asked for a moment of silence.

Williams and Turners Falls Fire Chief John Zellmann each gave a short speech, mentioning that first responders were among the 2,996 victims of the Sept. 11 attacks and vowing never to forget them. Williams also read a prayer.
