Just got the following from Ty Soliz, the Intramural Sports and Health & Wellness Coordinator here, at Midland College ...

On September 9th at 8:45 a.m. we will be having Remembrance Day in Beal Plaza. This year we are going to display pictures in the windows of the Club Room, beginning on September 6th, either "in honor of" or "in memory of."

If you have photos of any Military and/or Emergency personnel that you would like displayed, please send a copy (since they will be in the club room students will be in and out), to my office, Room 101 of Scharbauer Student Center, by September 2nd. Please write on the back whether it is "in memory of" or "in honor of."
