The Fellowship of Ministries, representing the churches and the Christian social service agencies of the North Boroughs, invites the community to attend a special worship service commemorating the 10th anniversary of the events of Sept. 11, 2011.

The combined choirs of several North Boroughs churches will sing portions of Gabriel Faure's “Requiem,” under the direction of Dr. Neil Strahurski. This piece was performed in its entirety on the first anniversary of 9-11.


Ben Avon voters will find a full slate of choices for borough office on the Nov. 3 ballot, and are sure to pick at least one new member of council.

The potential exists for voters to replace up to four members of council and the mayor, although incumbent Lloyd Corder has a head start on the pack by appearing on both the Democratic and Repub-lican ballots. Corder was listed on the GOP ballot in the primary, but picked up enough write-in votes to secure a position on the Democratic ticket as well.
