Maple Valley 9/11 Memorial Project
In 2013 one of our Maple Valley Firefighters wrote a letter to the Commissioner of the Fire Department of New York City requesting a piece of steel from the World Trade Center tragedy for use in a local memorial. One year later we were granted a piece of this tragic event in American history. With your help, this steel will be the centerpiece of a 9/11 memorial in front of Maple Valley Fire Station 81. Although this piece of WTC steel will be a focal point of the memorial, we plan to construct a memorial that will remember all those who lost their lives on that tragic day, whether they were at the World Trade Centers, The Pentagon or aboard United flight 93.
Due to the frequency of fire station visits by citizens and children of the community we identified early on that it is very important to turn this into an educational piece as well as a work of art. To that purpose, care is being taken to ensure that around this memorial there will be educational boards describing the circumstances around September 11, 2001.
The Fire Department will be handling all finances, a committee has been formed, and a design has been conceptualized. We have approximately half of the necessary funds to complete the project. We now humbly ask for your help so that we might bring this educational, and historical item to be displayed at your community fire station.
