9/11 Memorial at the 2020 County Fair

On January 23rd we were joined by Carol Horning to share with the club that the 9/11 Memorial will be returning to the Washington County Fair this year.   Carol was a major organizer for the memorial to come to Washington back in 2018 and is very excited to have them come back again.  They have completely gutted and updated the displays, so even if you saw the memorial last time, this will be a new experience again.   

The mobile exhibit was started back in 2013 by the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation to pay tribute to all those who lost their lives on 9/11.  The experience is topped off with guided tours by FDNY firefighters who provide firsthand accounts of the day and days following the attack.  Funds raised by the Stephen Siller Foundation go towards Gold Star Family Home Program and Smart Home Program who provide mortgage free homes to a surviving spouse with young children or veterans who have a disability that affects their mobility.
The memorial will be here 3 days again (currently set for Sunday, Monday and Tuesday of the fair)
