A wonderful job by Cub Scout Pack 3141 in organizing a 9/11 remembrance ceremony outside of the CIS building on Sept. 11.  JES students all came out to witness the event. The Troy Township Fire Department rang a bell in honor of those fire fighters who lost their lives that day in 2001. Members of Pack 3141 raised and then lowered an American flag, JES music teacher Mr. Joel Kithcart sang the National Anthem, there was a prayer from a local pastor, memories of the day were shared from a current service member, and a wreath was laid at the base of the flag while ninth-grader Anthony L. played taps in the background. It was an honor to have so many law enforcement agencies, service members and veterans on hand for the event as well. Thank you for your service and sacrifice.
