World Trade Center steel arrives this weekend
Although it doesn’t have a permanent home yet, steel salvaged from the World Trade Center and destined to be made into a memorial for those who died on the terrorist attacks of Sept 11, 2001 will arrive in Silverdale Sunday.
The procession of motorcycles and supporters, and the steel beams strapped to a trailer and covered in the American flag, is expected to arrive at the mall parking lot for a blessing ceremony at about 5 or 6 p.m., according to a statement from the Kitsap 9-11 memorial committee.
Organizers had hoped to place the memorial at Silverdale Waterfront Park, but were denied.
The beams will also be on display at the Kitsap County Fair. For more information go to www.Kitsap911memorial.org.
