On behalf of the entire community, the Plainview-Old Bethpage Chamber of Commerce will be presenting a Memorial to 911 that is bold, beautiful and brave. It will be a testament to all those who died in the World Trade Center; and a monument to their memory and the bedrock principles which make our country great: Freedom, Liberty & Tolerance.
Reflecting these ideals, the Memorial will be created by renowned Long Island artist David Haussler with a beautiful sculpture featuring a piece of steel from the World Trade Center.
The Memorial will be installed at the POB Library's Alma Craib Memorial Garden, a serene and beautiful setting for the scuplture. The project will also include an innovative educational component that students from POBJFK High School Media Arts Department will create to memorialize the events of September 11th.
The Chamber plans on presenting the 911 Memorial to our community on Sunday, September 11, 2016.
