|Napa 9/11 Memorial Coalition announces “The Unveiling – Phase ll”|
Tuesday September 4, 2012
The Napa 9/11 Coalition has announced “The Unveiling – Phase II” – a pair of events to recognize donors and to publicly unveil the solid glass panels that memorialize the nearly 3,000 victims of the 9/11 attacks.
About a year ago, on September 11, 2011, a ceremony and dedication was held at the site of the Memorial on Main Street in Downtown Napa, marking the first phase of the project. The centerpiece of the Memorial, the art installation, combines 30 tons of steel beams from the World Trade Center site with massive glass panes and state of the art lighting. The Napa 9/11 Memorial will be one of the largest community memorials and will serve as a monument to those who perished on September 11, 2001 and to the first responders who acted heroically in the events that followed the terrorist attacks, as well as an educational piece for generations to come. The Memorial is a public- private partnership, developed by a large number of individuals and groups working together with a common purpose. Donations to the project and questions regarding the event should be directed to Jeff Gerlomes at 707.333.6018.Learn more about the project at www.Napa911Memorial.org.
