Milford Mayor Ben Blake invites the community to commemorate the events of Sept. 11, 2001 with a Day of Remembrance, Reflection and Community Service at Jonathan Law High School.
An opening ceremony is scheduled for 8 a.m. Wednesday at the Lansdale Avenue school. There are several goals in holding the city’s official ceremonies at Jonathan Law, which include:
- To educate our students about 9/11.
- To encourage our students to get involved in community service activities in the area.
- To raise money for the Welles Remy Crowther Charitable Trust.
Crowther was a heroic victim of Sept. 11 and his family has created a charitable trust dedicated to serving young people throughout the country. Jonathan Law has been a beneficiary of this charity’s generosity.
The school will run on a special schedule, which will include a “Red Bandana Walk” in honor of Crowther and others lost 12 years ago. In addition to the opening ceremony, the public is also invited to attend the walk.
On Tuesday night, Jonathan Law will host a “Celebrity Scoop” at Rita’s Water Ice, 175 Boston Post Road. From 6 to 8:30 p.m. a portion of sales will be donated to the Welles Remy Crowther Charitable Trust.
