LEWISBORO, N.Y. The Lewisboro Sept. 11 Memorial Committee will hold a meeting on Thursday at the Vista firehouse at 7 p.m. and the public is encouraged to attend.
Last year, the Vista Fire Department received a steel beam artifact from the World Trade Center from the Port Authority and plans to use it to create a 9/11 memorial on the firehouse grounds. The department is seeking public input for the project.
A groundbreaking ceremony has been scheduled for 7 p.m., Sept. 11, to mark the beginning of the construction of the memorial.
Beginning this week, a meeting will be held every Thursday night at the Vista firehouse right up to the groundbreaking ceremony.
The more people we have [at the meetings] the better, said Anthony Carelli, a member of the Sept. 11 Memorial Committee. We want to get everyones insight.
Carelli said the committee is selling t-shirts and recruiting corporate sponsors to help pay for the memorial.
The Vista firehouse is at 377 Smith Ridge Road.
