Director of Public Affairs, September 13, 3:36PM
In acknowledgement of President Bushs designation of
tomorrow (Friday, September 14) as a national day of prayer
and remembrance, the College has scheduled two observances.
All members of the College community are invited to
participate in both events:
- At 12:15 p.m.
tomorrow the campus community is asked to observe a five
minute period of silence in acknowledgement of President
Bushs suggestion that midday be a time for all
citizens to reflect on the recent tragic events and the
many people who have suffered as a result of them. All
activities will be suspended, and the bells of Mead
Chapel will toll in remembrance of those who have
perished. All members of the College community are asked
to respect this time of silence. Mead Chapel will be open
for those who wish to gather there.
- At 5 p.m. tomorrow
in Kenyon Arena there will be a community-wide memorial
observance. Both the College and local communities are
invited to attend this ecumenical, non-denominational
event. Area churches and religious organizations will
participate. Because of the time of the event, campus
dining halls will remain open until 9 p.m. tomorrow. The
event is expected to be heavily attended by residents of
the local area, so those on campus who can walk to Kenyon
Arena are encouraged to do so.
Vt.-In recognition of the National Day of Prayer and
Remembrance, as announced by President Bush, Middlebury
College will hold an on-campus observance at 5 p.m. on
Friday, Sept. 14 at Kenyon Arena on Route 30 (South Main
Street). Both the College and local communities are invited
to attend this ecumenical, non-denominational event. Area
