Events planned to commemorate 9/11

Some people will join hands, while others will light candles.

One remembrance service to commemorate 9/11 will consist of sacred readings, reflections and song.

Many events are planned this weekend to commemorate the 10-year anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

The following is a listing of several remembrance events open to the public:


• Terre Haute Ministries has organized a communitywide “Day of Service,” and those wanting to volunteer should gather at 8 a.m. by the City Hall steps. Volunteers will build three residential wheelchair ramps and also do cleanup and lawn care projects for some individuals in need and around the city, said the Rev. Honnalora Hubbard, director of Terre Haute Ministries.

People also can donate items for 9/11 care packages, which will be assembled by Terre Haute Ministries volunteers and shipped to U.S. service men and women in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Donated items can be dropped off from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. today at the Salvation Army, 234 S. Eighth St. “We are in desperate need of more donations,” Hubbard said Thursday.

The most requested items needed include single-serving, nonperishable snacks; pre-sweetened drink mixes; toothbrushes; liquid body wash; olive green undershirts; black bootcut socks; AA and AAA batteries; and letters of support.

Gift cards and cash donations also are welcome, and Hubbard would use those to buy items for care packages. Hubbard can be reached at (812) 234-7100, ext. 215.

The local Day of Service is part of a national effort to make the 10th-anniversary weekend the largest outpouring of charitable service in U.S. history.


• The public is invited to a 30-minute “Remembrance Opportunity” at the Terre Haute South Vigo High School track. The event has been organized by teacher Jim Mann, students and staff.

Gates will open at 8 a.m., and patriotic music begins at 8:30 a.m.

One minute of silence will take place at 8:46 a.m., which is the time of the first plane attack on the World Trade Center. Also at that time, those attending will join hands as they stand around the track.

Patriotic music concludes at 9 a.m. and the gates close at 9:30 a.m. “It’s a time to reflect,” Mann said.

• At 4 p.m., the Indiana State University School of Music will host a “Reflection and Hope” concert in Tilson Auditorium.

It will include the ISU Concert Choir, the University Symphony Orchestra and the University Wind Orchestra. It also will have a simultaneous slide show of 9/11-related images.

• 7 p.m. The Wabash Valley 9/11 Memorial Event will take place at Fairbanks Park. A blood drive is scheduled for 6 p.m. and the program at 7 p.m. The city, county and other groups have worked collaboratively with T.J. (Terri) Coonce. (see separate story for details)

• At 9 p.m., a candlelight vigil will take place at ISU’s Dede Plaza by the fountain. The event will last about one-half hour.
