24 HOUR EMERGENCY
Poison Control Center
The 3,000-pound I-beam from Tower One will be the focus of the memorial being constructed, said Deputy Greg Dotson, who is coordinating the memorial drive.
“The memorial will remember those who have fallen on Sept. 11, 2001 due to planned acts of terrorists as well as the troops who have fallen since that day in defending freedom and trying to rid the world of terrorism,” Dotson said. “The memorial will show support for the troops who are still at war and in harms’ way.”
Cost of the memorial is estimated at $30,000. Donations and the sale of bricks will fund the project. Pre-ordered bricks will be on display. Bricks will be on sale during the 9-11 fair.
Victims of the 9-11 terrorists’ attacks and the military officers who sacrificed their lives will be remembered from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday during the annual 9-11 ceremony at the Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office.
The victims and military will be forever remembered in the 9-11 Memorial being constructed at the sheriff’s office at 940 New Salem Highway. The initial stages of the memorial will be unveiled during the 2 p.m. ceremony. The centerpiece of the memorial will be a 3,000-pound steel I-beam from the World Trade Center I.
Deputy Greg Dotson is coordinating the drive to erect the memorial.
“I hope everyone will come out Sunday and see the unveiling of the monument so many have given their lives for - those who perished on 9-11, the military who lost their lives defending freedom, families who lost loved ones and those locally who have given time to bring something special to the community,” Dotson said. “The memorial will always be a place for those who served, those who are going to serve and those who have lost someone who has served to remember. The monument will stand forever to symbolize freedom, unity and patriotism.”
