Walk Of Ages Will
Remember Victims

A solemn tribute to the victims of the
9-11 terrorist attacks on America will
open this year's W.J. & Lillian Kemler

programs to support Jewish older adults.
A 9-11 commemoration program will

There will be a moment of silence and
taps will be sounded. The walk begins at
10 a.m., rain or shine.
Grand marshals this year are philan-
thropists Miriam and Jack Shenkman
of Farmington Hills. Grand marshal
emeritus is Danny Raskin, Jewish News
senior columnist. A number of celebrity
walkers will participate.
The walk also will feature train rides,
a petting zoo and face paining for chil-
dren, games and prizes. Refreshments
will be served at the finish line.
Participants must register and pay an
entry fee of $18 per person in advance
or $20 on the day of the walk; $36 in
advance for families (up to two adults and
four children), or 540 on walk day. Team
Spirit walkers pay $118 for a team of five
to nine walkers; $236 for a team of 10 to

Lawn signs to be displayed on
Dedication Lane cost $180.
Co-chairpersons of the walk are
Auxiliary President Elaine Beresh of
West Bloomfield and Pearlena Bodzin of
Southfield. Beresh noted, "Sept. 11 is also
Grandparents Day, so the Walk of Ages
should be a lot of fun for the entire fam-
ily — for a very good cause." For infor-
mation, call Judy Dunn, (248) 661-2969.
