Tewksbury will be hosting a Candlelight Vigil Tuesday night, to mark the 11th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.
Tewksbury residents Peter Gay and Peter Hashem were among the 93 Massachusetts residents killed in the attacks. Plaques remembering the two local men are featured in the 9/11 Memorial, while the names of all 93 Massachusetts victims are etched in bricks on the walkway of the monument.
Last year, a piece of twisted steel from the World Trade Center Twin Towers was added to the memorial.
The vigil will begin at 7 p.m. and will feature a speech by Larissa Gay, daughter of Peter Gay. Local Boy Scouts will lead the Pledge of Allegiance and music will be provided by the Tewksbury High Band and singer Michael Lally.
The Tewksbury Police Department and Fire Department Honor Guards will be participating in the event and local police officers and firefighters will be reading off the names of the Massachusetts victims.
