NANUET, NY — All around the Hudson Valley people are taking the opportunity to remember the tragic events of Sept. 11, 2001. It was 18 years ago that planes struck the Twin Towers in lower Manhattan and the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia, and a plane crashed into a field in Somerset County, Pennsylvania.

On Wednesday, there will be moments of silence, the reading of names of those who perished and time for reflection.

Many have already signed up for volunteer work as a memorial. SEE: 9/11 Anniversary: Serve And Remember
