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.
