Memorial event Friday at Centennial Hall

Posted: Thursday, September 13, 2001

Memorial events are planned around Alaska at noon Friday, part of a national day to remember and honor those killed, injured or affected by Tuesday's terrorist attacks.

The Juneau ceremony will begin at noon at Centennial Hall, said Bob King, spokesman for Gov. Tony Knowles.

"Mayor Sally Smith and Lt. Gov. Fran Ulmer will lead the service in Juneau with the faith community," King said.

Juneau's event was originally scheduled for Saturday morning in Juneau but was changed after the national day of remembrance was declared. The change was announced after the Empire's Thursday deadline, so that print edition of the newspaper lists the Saturday plan.

Knowles and Anchorage religious leaders will be part of an event there Friday, tentatively scheduled for the city's Performing Arts Center. The Anchorage service may be broadcast on the "Gavel-to-Gavel" cable TV channel and the Alaska Public Radio Network.

Juneau's nondenominational service will be followed by a time for quiet contemplation and for those who want to write or draw messages of support to the people of New York and Washington, D.C.
