9/11 Remembrance Set in Gouldsboro

GOULDSBORO — The bells of the Prospect Harbor United Methodist Church will ring 343 times Sunday in honor of the 343 firefighters who died in the attack on the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001.

Fire Chief Bob Harmon said the event marking the 10th anniversary of the terrorist assault will begin with a ceremony in front of the flagpole at the town office at 8:42 a.m.

“That’s when the attacks started,” Harmon said.

Nearly 3,000 people died in the attacks.

Harmon said those in attendance will then move into the church for a special service in honor of the firefighters, police, emergency medical technicians and veterans who perished a decade ago.

The event is open to the public. Refreshments will follow at the church.

For more information, call the town office at 963-5589.
