(09/07/16) - The Fenton City Fire Department will be marking the fifteenth anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks with a big unveiling this weekend.

“We've built a memorial site to honor the victims from the 9/11 terrorist attacks,” said City of Fenton Fire Department Chief Bob Cairnduff.

It will sit on the south lawn of the City of Fenton Fire Department.

“The memorial stones themselves that feature a piece of the world trade center, we'll do an official unveiling the day of at 1:30. We'll do a ceremony, some guest speakers - the mayors, local clergy - to offer some thoughts and prayers,” Cairnduff said.

The project has been about a year in the works and cost around $20,000. The city paid for $8,000 and the rest had to be made up through fundraising and donations.

Most of the labor was done by Fenton firefighters, a special way for them to honor all of the first responders who lost their lives.

The ceremony is at 1:30 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 11 outside the fire department on East Caroline Street in Fenton.
