9-1-1 BEAM TO BE PART OF LOCAL MEMORIAL

A steel I-beam from the North Tower of the World Trade Cen­ter will be part of a new mon­u­ment on the Ful­ton County Fair­grounds.

The I-beam was most likely a ver­ti­cal sup­port beam from one of floors. Bits of con­crete from the floor are still vis­i­ble. The force of the destruc­tion on that Sep­tem­ber morn­ing is obvi­ous. The steel is frac­tured, rip­pled, and dented.

The ground­break­ing for the new mon­u­ment, accord­ing to the Bryan Times, will be 2 p.m. April 14 next to the Veteran’s Pavil­ion at the Ful­ton County Fair­grounds.

Total cost is about $110,000, with all funds raised by pri­vate dona­tions.

To con­tribute, con­tact the Ful­ton County 9/11 Memo­r­ial Com­mit­tee at 419–335-7831.
