Remember that 3,300-pound piece of steel recovered from the North Tower of the World Trade Center site after September 11, 2001 and donated to the Grand Traverse Metro Firefighters? Yesterday morning a crane from Elmer’s set the artifact onto its final resting place in the Grand Traverse 911 Memorial Park, located behind the Grand Traverse Metro Fire Department at 897 Parsons Road in Traverse City. The 3,300 pound beam has been welded in place at an angle tilted toward New York City. A 911 Remembrance Ceremony will be held at the memorial park on September 11 at 8:30 a.m. The park will be open to the public 24 hours a day in honor of all the firefighters, emergency services personnel and citizens who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. Donations are still needed to complete the park. Want to help? Consider buying a brick ($75) enscribed with the name of a NYFD firefighter or emergency services workers who lost his or her life that morning.
