Remember 9/11 Through Charitable Service

Sept.11 continues to be remembered in a variety of ways by communities throughout the nation. As a National Day of Service and Remembrance, officially designated by Congress, Alhambra residents and others in the community are being urged to engage in some form of charitable service as a tribute to the 9/11 victims, survivors, and those who rose up in service in response to the attacks.

Those looking to become involved in civic activities of benefit to fellow Alhambrans are urged to join the Alhambra Coordinating Council. The next meeting will take place at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 29, in the Civic Center Library-Reese Hall, 101 S. First St. Membership is open to all community groups, organizations, agencies, schools, individuals, and businesses in the City of Alhambra.

The Coordinating Council’s activities run parallel to the charitable service objectives established by the National Day of Service and Remembrance — to unite together through volunteerism to make Alhambra a better place for everyone in the community. Coordinating Council volunteers focus on solving community problems, gathering facts and recommending actions, and coordinating various community projects. They just successfully completed their biggest project since inception — coordinating activities for the Special Olympics Host Town program. Questions about the Coordinating Council should be directed to Paolo Kespradit at 626-570-5010, or e-mail him at pkespradit@cityofalhambra. org.

Many people across the U.S. were moved to act in the days following the attacks of 2001 and for many years thereafter. Let’s make sure that in 2015 Alhambra continues to remember 9/11 by spending a few moments in thoughtful reflection and patriotism and uniting together in service to serve those in greatest need in this community
