National 9/11 Memorial & Museum First Signature Ceremony
The National 9/11 Memorial & Museum is bringing steel I-beams that will be used in the construction of the Memorial to Washington, D.C. for the public to sign on Friday and Saturday, July 3rd and 4th from 10:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. The beams will be located outside of the Newseum on Pennsylvania Avenue at Sixth Street NW.
In the past two years, the National 9/11 Memorial & Museum has brought steel I-beams to 27 states across the country. The public is invited to “be a part of history” by signing these beams. Since the first beam signing in Columbia, SC, tens of thousands of people have added their names and reflections to the steel that will be used in the construction of the national memorial to the victims of 9/11 at the site of the World Trade Center in New York City.
Please join us for the First Signature Ceremony at 10:00 a.m. on Friday, July 3rd. The ceremony will mark the beams’ arrival in our nation’s capitol, open the signing up to the public, and bring the community together to reflect not just on the events of 9/11, but, equally as important, on the spirit that emerged around the world in the aftermath of the attacks.
The National 9/11 Memorial at the World Trade Center will be a tribute to the nearly 3,000 innocent victims of the terrorist attacks of February 26, 1993 and September 11, 2001. The Museum on the site of the Memorial will educate the millions of visitors to Ground Zero through exhibitions that will include artifacts both intimate and monumental.
