Wisconsin Rapids Mayor Zach Vruwink and Police Chief Kurt Heuer are asking city residents to observe a moment of silence at 1:50 p.m. Monday to honor the victims of the bombings in Boston, the mayor's office announced.

The one-minute silent tribute will be followed by the ringing of bells in Boston and elsewhere in Massachusetts, according to a news release from Nicholas Flanagan, mayor's office executive coordinator.

To assist the people most affected by the bombings, Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Tom Menino also announced the formation of The One Fund Boston Inc., which is taking donations at onefundboston.org.
