Many of us remember where we were and what we were doing the moment we heard that a plane had crashed into one of the twin towers. Not soon later we learned about additional strikes on the remaining tower, the Pentagon, and near Shanksville, PA, avoiding the terrorists’ intended target, the Capital building. The hijackings on September 11, 2001 will forever be etched into the minds of Americans and this September, we ask everyone to remember the men and women who lost their lives that day.

Looking for some fun for the whole family? Then come on out to a Touch-a-Truck event in your area.
This Saturday, September 24th, Wyoming Area Catholic Teacher Group will host a Touch-a-Truck event at Wyoming Area Catholic School. The event will take place from 11 am to 3 pm and feature a variety of trucks and vehicles that children can interact with. Whether it’s working the siren of a police car, climbing into an excavator, or blowing the horn of a tractor trailer, children will have fun learning about the vehicles and getting in on the action. For those children startled by the loud noises, the event will hold a silent hour from 11 am to noon. Food vendors will also be available.
