Dear friends and families,

Please read the following announcement. The Rev. Gail Burwa has
been a constant source of strength and help for the September 11th
community. She has arranged the following commemorative service for all of
us, families of victims, survivors and first responders. St. Andrew’s
church in Lambertville, NJ has offered us this service, followed by a
reception. They have also provided us with space to hold a press
conference and update on the efforts to properly bury our dead.

We have invited elected officials to join us, and are awaiting
their answers. If any of you would like, please feel free to invite your
local officials or clergy. This church is located in a very lovely area,
noted for its galleries and its attention to the arts. For us, the
September 11th community, it holds added meaning as it is located near the
Buck’s County Garden of Reflection, which many of you might want to visit .
