Today there is a memorial service taking place on the Village Green in GC at 6:45pm. If you are unable to attend, or even if you do attend but still want to commemorate this day in a special way, think about volunteering somewhere in our community- for just a day or something more long term. You may even want to start an annual tradition- volunteer with a friend or with your children every year on or around September 11th.
Here are six ways to volunteer in remembrance of 9/11:
