Plymouth Community to Gather for September 11 Remembrance Ceremony

August 20th, 2002 by Adam

Beginning at 9:55 a.m. on Wednesday, September 11, church and tower bells throughout Plymouth will toll inviting the community to gather for a September 11 Remembrance Ceremony. The ceremony is being coordinated by Plymouth State College and the Town of Plymouth, and will take place in the outdoor amphitheater behind the Silver Cultural Arts Center on the PSC campus.

At 10 a.m. the bells will stop, and a silent procession of firefighters/rescue workers, police, the National Guard and student leaders/civilians will commence, followed by a wreath laying ceremony and the pledge of allegiance. At 10:05 a.m. firefighters will sound chimes marking the collapse of World Trade Center Tower 2. Flags will be lowered to half mast and brief presentations will be made by PSC President Don Wharton, Selectman John Tucker and the Rev. Susan Ackley, rector of the Church of the Holy Spirit.

Musical reflections will be led by the PSC Chamber Singers under the direction of Dan Perkins, and Taps will be performed on trumpet. Firefighters will again sound chimes at 10:28 a.m. marking the collapse of Tower 1. Flags will be raised and a silent recessional will conclude the ceremony at 10:30 a.m.

A memorial with the names of all the victims of September 11, 2001 will be erected where flowers and messages can be placed. There will be a reception immediately following the ceremony on the Alumni Green in front of the Hartman Union Building. Limited parking will be available at the PSC PE Center, a short walk from the main campus.
