A moment of remembrance

Today marks 18 years since the horrific 9/11 attacks that brought the country to a grinding halt. It was a day that saw thousands of loved ones lost and that many will never forget. Please take a moment today to remember the victims and their loved ones and perhaps say a prayer for them. We should never forget the atrocities that were inflicted upon our country that day almost two decades ago.

Community remembers

victims

Today multiple members of the community and local organizations will be doing their part to help remember the victims of the devastating 9/11 attacks. The following events will take place today:

— Flags of Heroes dedication at the Clinton County Courthouse, 8:30 a.m. It’s sure to be a solemn and meaningful service as we remember those who lost their lives on that day in 2001.

— The 7th Annual 9/11 Moving Tribute. Members of the community will take turns carrying the American Flag beginning at 5:45 a.m., the time the hijackers passed through security on Sept. 11, 2001, and continue until 8:30 p.m., when President Bush addressed the nation. The public is encouraged to walk along side this men and women as they keep the memory of those who were lost alive.

— Angel Lights at Triangle Park beginning at dusk. The Angel Lights event, sponsored by Rotary Club of Downtown Lock Haven, presents a silent, glowing testament of hope and love. It draws people to the park to experience a moment of peace and serenity on the anniversary of the tragic attacks, now known as the National Day of Remembrance.

Community Lunch

The Lamar United Methodist Church will start their monthly third Thursday Lunch Program on Sept. 19 at Noon. The menu is fried chicken, oven baked potatoes, candied carrots, cole slaw and desserts. Everyone is welcome!
