9-11 MEMORIAL

PLAQUE TEXT:

This is a section of I-beam recovered from the ruins of the World Trade Centre. It serves as a memorial for those who lost their lives during the events of September 11th, 2001, and the continued impact the event has had on the world. Of the 2,977 victims, 343 were responding firefighters. In 2015, applications were submitted by communities around the world to acquire pieces of the World Trade Centre to establish memorials. Belleville was one of the first cities in Canada to be gifted a piece.
