Plans Under Way in Dumont to Mark 10th Anniversary of Sept. 11 4 August , 2011

Plans are under way in Dumont to mark the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 attack on America.

A community-wide interfaith service will be held at 9 a.m. at Dumont High School followed later by a candlelight vigil at dusk in Memorial Park.

The public and emergency responders from Dumont and local communities are invited to participate in either or both events to honor those who died and those who responded.

“Our goal is not only to remember the fallen and the responders, but also to honor their lives by sharing any positive outcomes from such horrific violence,” said the Rev. Elaine Wing, pastor of Calvary United Methodist Church, and John Perkins, borough administrator.

Three local churches have committed to canceling their regular Sunday morning worship service and to encourage their congregations to worship together at 9 a.m.

“Our administrative board, like the Calvary United Methodist and Our Redeemer Lutheran Church Councils, decided this event was very important,” said the Rev. Richard Vander Borgh, pastor of Old North Reformed Church.
