Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints are inviting the community to assist them in various service projects throughout the community on Saturday, Sept. 11 as part of the National Day of Service and Remembrance.
In 2009, President Obama asked American citizens to participate in a federally recognized Day of Remembrance and Service to honor those who were lost in the 9/11 terrorist attacks,
“I call upon all Americans to join in service and honor the lives we lost, the heroes who responded in our hour of need, and the brave men and women in uniform who continue to protect our country at home and abroad,” said President Obama in a proclamation regarding Patriot Day and the National Day of Remembrance and Service issued on Sept. 10, 2009. “Working together, we can usher in a new era in which volunteering and more service is a way of life for all Americans. Deriving strength from tragedy, we can write the next great chapter in our Nation’s history and ensure that future generations continue to enjoy the promise of America.”
Local members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints have been working with city and county leaders to create a list of projects which will be able to be started and completed on that day throughout the community.
Anyone who would like to participate can check in at the parking area next to Lake Stevens City Hall before 9 a.m. and they will be assigned a service project.
