Hummels Wharf Fire Company unveils plan for 9-11 Memorial

Published:  22 July, 2011

The Hummels Wharf Fire Company in Pensylvania has revealed an artist’s rendition of the 9-11 Memorial that is being built at the local fire station. The memorial will include a glass enclosed archived steel beam from the World Trade Center, some archived soil from the Flight 93 Memorial site in Shanksville, PA., and an archive piece of limestone from the Pentagon. 

This display will be housed between two “Twin Towers”. Each tower will display a bronze plaque dedicating the memorial to all those who lost their lives on 9-11- 01, including those who responded to the disasters at the World Trade Center in New York, the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., and to the Flight 93 crash site in Shanksville, PA., by the fire company and the residents of Monroe Township. The second plaque will be dedicated to the past, present, and future members of the Hummels Wharf Fire Company and to all those who keep America safe every day.

The 9-11 Memorial will be dedicated on September 11, 2011, the tenth anniversary of the attacks. A formal dedication ceremony will be planned with refreshments served afterwards.  Anyone wishing to donate funds to help defray the costs of the memorial should send their donations to the Hummels Wharf Fire Company, click here or send a cheque to PO Box 253, Hummels Wharf, PA  17831, and mark it with a WTC on the check and envelope. All money donated will be used only for the construction of the memorial and the dedication.
