Sycamore UMC News - September 11 Remembrance, Scouting Project
September 11 Remembrance Service
Sycamore UMC hosted a community wide Remembrance Service for the victims of the September 11, 2001 disasters. Participating churches included Sycamore Baptist Church and Sycamore UMC.
An estimated 150 were in attendance. The Talladega Rescue Squad and the Talladega Firefighters Honor Guard were in attendance. Presentation of Colors was by the Honor Guard with a very moving Bell Service in memory of the fallen fire fighters and police officers.
A video of clips from that day was shown. The altar was decorated in red, white and blue overlaid by yellow. Four large pillar candles represented the four air planes that went down and ten smaller candles represented the ten years since the disasters.
U. S. Army Reserve Chaplain COL. Glenn Winter gave the message. COL. Winter and another office escorted family members of a hospital patient to New York the day after the disaster. He told of his experience while walking the streets of New York while in uniform and the welcome they received. The welcome he received on his most recent trip was not as welcoming. It was business as usual in New York.
At this service, members of the Honor Guard, Rescue Squad, policemen and National Guard representatives were thanked for their service to their community and country by those in attendance.
Light refreshments were served.
Eagle Scout Service Project
Eagle Scout Candidate, Hunter White, made Sycamore UMC his service project to the appreciation of the membership. Hunter was instrumental in making needed repairs to the fellowship hall and other areas of the church. Florescent light fixtures were donated and installed in the fellowship hall and hall way.
Additional repairs included: the ceiling in the fellowship hall was repaired and painted, fellowship hall was painted, and the columns on the front porch were cleaned and painted as were the front doors. Shrubs were trimmed and fallen limbs were removed.
Church members also participated in the cleanup and repairs by cleaning the steeple.
