Freedom Center ceremony postponed

        The groundbreaking ceremony for the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center has been rescheduled from June 10 to June 17.

        The evening event titled “Lighting Freedom's Flame” will take place on the north bank of the Ohio River, off Mehring Way at the foot of the John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge.

        A family festival of local entertainers, street performers, food vendors and booths with historic site information will begin at 7 p.m. National dignitaries and celebrities will speak at 8:30 p.m.

        At 9 p.m. a 500-member community choir will perform with lighted candles while crossing the Suspension Bridge from Kentucky to Ohio.

        The event is free to the public. To volunteer, contact Steve DeVillez of the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center at 412-6900 or visit the Center's Web site,
