Wellsville To Commemorate 9/11 Sunday
Wellsville will commemorate the 10th Anniversary of 9/11 with two special ceremonies this coming Sunday. First Christian Pastor Mark Blakely and the First Christian Sanctuary Choir will be having a Service of Remembrance at the church in the first event. The church is located at 831 Main St. Services will begin at 8:30 AM. The public is invited to join in remembering and honoring the heroes of that day and celebrate our country.
Later on in the day beginning at 5 PM there will be a second ceremony jointly sponsored by the Wellsville Area Chamber of Commerce and Village officials. That event will take place at the Cathy Salter Memorial/Boy With The Boot location at First Street & Wells Avenue.
Brief remarks will be given by State Senator Jason Wilson, CC Commissioner Penny Traina, Municipal Court Judge Melissa Byers-Emmerling and Charles Franklin. Mayor Joe Surace will serve as the Master of Ceremony. The public is invited and dinner will be served to all those wishing to attend, at American Legion Post 70 (229 Wells Ave.) following the commemoration. Members of the Wellsville High School Band and the WHS Ebony & Ivory Choir will provide musical selections.
Wellsville daughter Cathy Salter perished in the Twin Towers in New York City on that tragic day. Salter was an alumni of WHS Class of 1982. The commemoration will be dedicated to her memory. Pictured here is a memorial to Salter at Wellsville High School from her classmates.
