On some days, summer recreation has to give way to quiet reflection. Today, Wednesday, Sept. 11, municipalities, government agencies and community organizations across the region will honor those who died in the 2001 terrorist attacks on the Pentagon and the World Trade Towers, as well as those who lost their lives on Flight 93.
The last day of summer is Sept. 21. Or, you can look at it this way: The first day of fall is Sept. 22. Patch has found something for you to do each day as we count down until summer passes us by.
