As Hood River residents continue to cope with last week's terrorist attacks on the East Coast, these are some of the ways we are dealing with the tragedy:
The carillons on the downtown clock will chime new tunes for the next week or longer, announced Duane Perron of the International Museum of Carousel Art, where the clock is located.
From its perch at 3rd and Oak, the carillon plays the following schedule of patriotic music:
Noon -- "America the Beautiful"; 3 p.m. -- "My Country 'Tis of Thee"; 5 p.m. -- The National Anthem.
Evening worship services will be held tonight at St. Mark's Episcopal Church and continue each Wednesday for an indefinite period, announced the Rev. Robert Chrisman, St. Mark's rector. The special services will be at 7 p.m. at the church, located at 11th and Eugene streets.
Many area businesses and individuals have announced they will participate in the "One Day's Pay" campaign originated by local hair stylist Tammy Pauley. On Sept. 27, many business owners and employees will donate their pay to a fund called "Hood River Together Aids in America's Crisis." In addition, many retailers, restaurants and service establishments in town will donate profits from sales on that day to the fund. Individuals also can donate. All money collected will go to relief efforts in New York City. For more information about participating in the campaign, contact Tammy at 386-6000; Brigette at 386-1786; or Nicole at 386-6188.
Representatives from Hood River County fire departments participated in a memorial parade in The Dalles at noon Tuesday.
