The Governor also directed that U.S. and State of Connecticut flags be flown at half-staff from sunrise through sundown on September 11.

 

Governor Rell has proclaimed September 11, 2009, a Day of Remembrance in Connecticut.

   

Governor Rell led an official state service at the Living Memorial at Sherwood Island State Park memorial in Westport on September 9.  The memorial honors the 156 people with Connecticut ties who died on September 11, 2001.
