For many, the events of September 11th, 2001 are forever etched into our minds, along with the lessons taken away in the days that followed in strength, perseverance, togetherness, and community.  How do we share these sentiments with those too young to remember the tragedy? 

Students at Rivermont Collegiate will observe the anniversary of 9/11 with a commemorative ceremony next Tuesday morning. The entire school will gather at the flagpole in tribute to those killed in the attacks, as well as remembrance of the courage shown and miracles achieved in the aftermath.  The ceremony will include a special guest to remark on the meaning of the commemoration, followed by the raising of the flag, group singing of “America the Beautiful”, and a moment of silence during which the Rivermont junior class will toll a bell once for each year since September 11th, 2001.  The ceremony will begin at approximately 8:20 a.m.

Rivermont is honored to welcome Col. Duane Gamble, Deputy Commanding General of U.S. Army Sustainment Command headquartered at the Rock Island Arsenal, as our special guest for the ceremony.  Col. Gamble is a graduate of Western Maryland College (now McDaniel College) in Westminster, Md.  Prior to his commission at the Arsenal, he served at Department of the Army Headquarters in Washington, D.C. as Director for Strategy and Integration at the Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff.

Rivermont Collegiate, located at 1821 Sunset Drive in Bettendorf, is the Quad Cities’ only private, independent college prep school for students in preschool through 12th grade.

Des Moines, IA  (September 6, 2012) – On October 13th, 2012, more than 400 participants will gather at Principal Park in Downtown Des Moines as part of the American Lung Association in Iowa’s Fight for Air Walk.  Participants and sponsors hope to fundraise more than $50,000 to support the American Lung Association’s fight for healthy lungs and healthy air.  


“Many of our participants walk in honor or in memory of a loved one,” explains Micki Sandquist, Executive Director of the American Lung Association in Iowa.  “They fundraise in hopes of finding new treatments or a cure for lung diseases like asthma, COPD and lung cancer.”  


Participants walk as individuals or teams on a beautiful 3.1-mile course through the Des Moines trail system. A one-mile walk option is available on event day and wheelchairs and strollers are also welcome.
