A very special memorial program in memoriam of the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001 World Trade Center tragedy will be presented at the Wesbanco Arena at 4 p.m., Sunday, Sept. 11, 2011. Local fire fighters and police departments, along with first responders of our area will be recognized and honored during this program.
A special memorial choir has begun rehearsals for this event and will continue to meet on Sundays through Sept. 4, at 1 p.m. at St. Mary's Catholic Church, 20 N. 4th Street, Martins Ferry.
Organizers are hoping for at least 100 singers from the Upper Ohio Valley to participate and sing several familiar patriotic selections.
We are inviting all church choir members of the Upper Ohio Valley to come participate in this historic 10th Anniversary Commemoration. If you sing in your church choir, read music a little and/or once sang in a church choir and would like to join us, we welcome you!
Anyone interested in participating please call Marian Martin at 740-695-4827 or D. David Stiles at 304-277-4528 for details. Or simply show up at the rehearsal on Sunday. No fee or music purchase is required.
