The Oak Park community is invited to join in a candlelight Ceremony 
of Remembrance, to be held at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 11 in 
Scoville Park, at 800 W. Lake St. The ceremony, sponsored by the 
Village of Oak Park and the Park District of Oak Park, will 
commemorate the first anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks.

Oak Parker Harriet Gillem Robinet will read the Gettysburg address,
and a community group of high school-age madrigal singers will 
lead in singing the National Anthem.

The ceremony will include brief remarks by Village President Joanne 
Trapani, Park District President Laura Perna, Police Chief Rick Tanksley
and Deputy Fire Chief Mark Puknaitis.

Elizabeth Austin, who organized last year’s community vigil, will 
act as MC. The ceremony is expected to last about an hour. Participants 
are asked to bring their own candles. 

Afterward, the Park District will donate bags of red, yellow and white
tulip bulbs for participants to take home and plant as a permanent
memorial to those who died on Sept. 11. 

In case of rain, the ceremony will be held inside the Oak Park Arts 
Center, at 200 N. Oak Park Ave. 

This ceremony is one of many civic, religious, and private observances 
that will be held throughout the village to mark the Sept. 11 anniversary. 

For more information, please call Suzanne Vestuto, Village of Oak Park, 
at 358-5409, or Diane Stanke, Park District of Oak Park, at 725-2022.
