Breaking News: Governor Perry to Speak at Lufkin Memorial Service

At the request of NASA officials, a memorial in honor of Columbia Space Shuttle astronauts is set for tomorrow in Lufkin, exactly one week from the tragic event.

The Columbia Memorial will be held at First Baptist Church. Texas Governor Rick Perry will be on hand to deliver remarks. The church is located at 106 Bremond in Lufkin, just one block south of the Lufkin Civic Center.

The memorial begins at 8 a.m. A moment of silence will be observed at 8:16, the moment the Columbia was scheduled to have landed in Florida.
