An area college has three events planned for this weekend that remember those lost during the events of 9/11.  Martha Potts-Bell with Iowa Wesleyan University says the first event is a forum on how September 11 impacted American Muslims, and that takes place tomorrow morning at 11:00.

She says the college will honor local military personnel and first responders at the Iowa Wesleyan football game Saturday afternoon.  She says they’re invited to the game at no charge.

The school will then have a remembrance service Sunday afternoon in the Chapel Auditorium.

Potts-Bell says an Iowa Wesleyan nursing student from New Jersey, Erin Edwards, is coordinating this weekend’s events as a service project.
