9/11 steel beam in Harrison as part of remembrance
HARRISON, Ohio (WKRC) - Those wishing to take part in remembering the 9/11 attacks can see a traveling memorial to the tragedy in Harrison on the 16th anniversary.
The memorial is made of a piece of steel recovered from the World Trade Center. It includes a fireman's hat with the number 343, which represents the number of firefighters who died in the attacks while trying to save others.
The memorial is at the Circling Hills Golf Course in Harrison. That's also where a golf outing is scheduled to benefit first responders. The Greater Harrison Chamber of Commerce is holding the event. Sara Cullin with the chamber says the area can't have a strong business community without the help and support of first responders.
The 911 Steel exhibit will remain open to the public at the golf course until 6 p.m. The other half of that piece of steel is part of a permanent memorial in Green Township.
