Tribute To America Planned For Saturday

Sept. 13, 2001

At 1 p.m. Saturday, when Clemson would have kicked off its third football game of the year, there instead will be a very different kind of event in Memorial Stadium.

All faculty, staff, students and community members are invited to the stadium for the University’s “Tribute to America,” a brief, patriotic ceremony intended to honor the memory of people killed in Tuesday’s terrorist attacks and show support for the nation’s leaders and the men and women involved in rescue and disaster-relief efforts.

The ceremony will focus on patriotic symbolism and silent, individual reflection rather than speeches. Participants will have an opportunity to sign a banner expressing their personal thoughts and messages about the events of this past week.

If you attend the ceremony, park in the stadium parking lot behind the west end zone (between the stadium and Jervey Center), and enter through the west stand gates. Please be on the field by 12:45 p.m.
