CSC, community to remember 9/11

To commemorate the tenth anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, several campus organizations are hosting a memorial service at 11 a.m., Monday on the Flag Plaza of the Dean’s Green.

The service is set to include the raising and lowering of the American Flag to half-staff, remarks by 1st Lt. Franklin Annis, and the honoring of 55 Nebraskans who have fallen during the Global War on Terror.

The American Legion Auxiliary Unit 12 will provide refreshments following at the Mari Sandoz High Plains Heritage Center. The Center will also serve as the site of the service in the case of inclement weather.

“We want this event to be a true community event, with not only members of the CSC community, but the larger community as well. This was an event that affected us all, regardless of where we live,” Sarah Polak, director of the Sandoz Center, said.

Sponsors of the event are Chadron State College, Chadron State College Army ROTC Program, Mari Sandoz High Plains Heritage Center, Chadron State College Office of Student Activities, and the American Legion Auxiliary Unit 12.

For more information about this event please contact Annis at 432-6027 or Polak at 432-6401.
