Groups pay tribute to 9/11 anniversary

    FINGER LAKES—Sunday, Sept. 11, marks the 10 year anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
    Keuka College will mark the 10th anniversary of 9/11 with a ceremony Friday, Sept. 9, at noon on the Norton Chapel lawn led by College Chaplain Rev. Eric Detar.
    “We want to remember the events of Sept. 11, 2001 and honor those who died in the attacks,” said Detar. “We also want to reflect on where we are 10 years later.”
    Yates County emergency personnel—firefighters, police, dispatchers, and others—have been invited to attend.  The ceremony will include the dedication of an American elm tree.  The College also hopes to play an audio statement from Betty Maxfield, a 1965 Keuka College graduate, at the ceremony. Maxfield, chief of Army Demographics in the Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff for Personnel in the Pentagon, survived the Sept. 11 attack on the building.
    The Annual Valley Inn 9/11 Motorcycle Ride will take place on Sunday.  It will be a 105 mile trip through the Finger Lakes, starting at the Valley Inn Restaurant in Branchport.  The Branchport Fire Department will be a breakfast from 7 to 11 a.m.  The ride follows afterward at 11 a.m.
    The motorcycle route goes through Penn Yan at approximately 3 p.m., going down East Main Street to Elm Street, turning past the firehouse.  It will continue out Route 54A to Branchport and returning to the Valley Inn Restaurant.
    Bishop Frank Griswold will preach at Saint James’ Church Watkins Glen on Sunday, Sept. 11, at 10 a.m.   Also participating on Sunday will be the Bishop of Rochester, The Right Rev. Prince Singh.  The Sunday service will mark the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attack, which included the World Trade Center.   The Episcopal Parishes of Schuyler County will host a lawn reception adjacent to the Church immediately after the service for the bishops.
