Tribute walk for 9/11

The date of Sept. 11, 2001, will forever be remembered as a devastating one. On the tenth anniversary of that dreadful day, the United Way of St. Clair County will be hosting “A Remembrance Tribute Walk” in the streets of Port Huron.

“The walk is to not only to remember the people lost and affected by 9/11/01, but also to remember and celebrate the spirit of community and volunteerism that occurred on 9/12/01,” states the Port Huron Chamber of Commerce event webpage.

The event will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

In addition to the walk, there will also be a peace pole dedication located on Military Street in Port Huron at 2:00 p.m. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to join.

There are various peace pole locations that you may walk, or drive, the route, which include St. Clair County Community College on McMorran Blvd., and First United Methodist Church on Lapeer Ave.

Joining the United Way in this event will get us a little closer to making this statement on the flyer become reality, “May Peace Prevail On Earth.”
