A 1,100-square-foot interactive memorial to honor the rescue workers who gave their lives in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks on the Twin Towers and Pentagon will be on display in Medina today and Wednesday.
The Tunnel to Towers memorial will be set up in the parking lot on the southeast corner of West Liberty Street and South Elmwood Avenue. The exhibit will be open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. today and noon to 6 p.m. Wednesday.
The memorial will include artifacts from the National September 11 Memorial Museum and firefighters who were there on 9/11 will share personal stories.
“Like a lot of other people, we are genuinely worried that the story of Sept. 11 isn’t being taught adequately in the schools,” Frank Siller, foundation founder said on TunnelToTowersMedina.org. “Part of our mission as an organization has always been to spread the message of, ‘Never forget.’ ”
Medina also will be the site of a Stephen Siller 5K race. People who want to participate in the Sept. 14 race can register at www.t2trun.org. Stephen Siller was among the firefighters killed on Sept. 11, 2001.
