The Ally Center for Civil Rights and Civic Responsibility at University of Wisconsin-Stout hosted a day of remembrance and community service event at the Clock Tower Plaza in downtown Menomonie, on Sunday for the 9-11 terrorist attacks that took place 10 years ago. Darrin Witucki, director of the UW-Stout Memorial Student Center, and Trevor Peterson, Americorps VISTA (Volunteer and Service to Community), and other volunteers took shifts to man the site.

From 7:46 a.m. (when the attacks began) until 4 p.m., members of the campus and local community could stop by and leave a note of remembrance. Nonperishable food items were also collected for donation to the local Stepping Stones Food Pantry.

A follow-up discussion will be held today (Wednesday, Sept. 14), from 6-7:30 p.m. in room 290 of Micheels Hall. The discussion will center on how the events of 9-11 shaped a generation. The program is part of the Diversity and Dialogue Series coordinated through the Ally Center.
