College Republicans Sponsor 9/11 Event

Thursday, September 7, 2006 - 14:00

Victims of the September 11 attacks five years ago will be honored Monday with a memorial, sponsored by the Mount Holyoke College Republicans. Students will place 2,977 U.S. flags (one for each victim) on Skinner Green. Flags will be on display throughout the entire day. The campus memorial is part of a national effort led by the Young America's Foundation (YAF) .

"The Mount Holyoke College Republicans decided to sponsor this project on the fifth anniversary of the September 11 attacks because since 2001 our country has changed dramatically, and on this day we hope that the campus will take time to remember and honor the innocent victims of 9/11," said Jo Jensen, president of the student organization.
