Band together

The ECA writes:
The city has offered the ECA up to $3,000 for tree banding this fall, and we need your help! The grant will help the ECA subsidize tree banding materials, making it cheaper for everyone to keep those pesky canker worms at bay. We need a lot of signatures, essentially saying you'll give at least one hour to band trees. This is something we all do anyway, so you don't need to commit to anything extra.

Please stop by one of these front porches to sign your name by October 14:

2338 Greenway Ave -- Crandall residence
2319 Kenmore Ave -- Poole residence
2400 E. 5th St -- Packard residence
1955 E. 8th St -- Holman residence

If you have questions, please email Britta Crandall at: brittacrandall at-sign yahoo.com

On Sunday September 11th there will be a ceremony/remembrance presented by the Firefighter Steven Coakley Foundation at the old Fire Station now the Palmer Building on 7th Street. The first bell will ring at 8:30 which is when the first plane struck the World Trade Center. Also there will be an unveiling of a piece of steel from Ground Zero that is a very small piece of an enormous pile of debris and a powerful reminder to “NEVER FORGET”.

On site until the morning of September 13th are two rows of flags that symbolize the Twin Towers with photos that commemorate the life of every person that died that day.
