Much of the day was occupied with worship and remembrance services. In Reading City Park is a memorial to a fallen firefighter, a man who gave his life in the line of duty in 1985. After the Lutheran ceremony that began at 11:30 a.m. someone placed flowers from the service by the monument near Columbia Drive.
The church program contained among other hymns a lovely one Our Nation. The 46 psalm was also read. The sermon was by Peggy, who had been in Queens in 2011.
