Boston Mayor Tom Menino, Governor Deval Patrick, and One Fund Boston are calling on cities and towns across Massachusetts to join together in a Moment of Silence on Monday afternoon, exactly one week after the Boston Marathon bombings.

The minute of silence will take place at 2:50 p.m. to honor the victims of the attacks and their families.

It will be followed by the ringing of bells throughout Boston and the Commonwealth.

Mayor Menino and Governor Patrick said they are humbled by the support shown by the public and the business community, and they continue to encourage everyone to visit onefundboston.org to make a donation to help the victims of this tragedy.
