9/11 Never Forget Memorial at Celebrate Waupun
Waupun Festivals and the Waupun Fire Department are excited to announce that a wonderful and memorable display and exhibit is coming to Celebrate Waupun 2019! We would love your support in bringing this to the area. The events of that day have forever impacted our nation. Thousands of innocent citizens perished when the towers collapsed. 343 firefighters with FDNY and 60 police officers with the Port Authority, New Jersey and New York Police Departments lost their lives during the initial response. It is important that we never forget the sacrifices so many people made and continue to make in protecting our nation. The 9/11 Never Forget Mobile Exhibit will allow folks to hear firsthand from FDNY firefighters of their experiences that day. The high-tech, 53-foot trailer, which transforms into an 1,100 square foot exhibit, is a tool to further educate citizens throughout the country about the events of that tragic day. We expect a great deal of interest in this exhibit as this is only its second visit to the State of Wisconsin since it was created in 2013. Please consider donating to help offset the cost of this Memorial Exhibit coming! For more information, visit: https://tunnel2towers.org/our-programs/911-never-forget-mobile-exhibit+ Read More
WE NEED YOUR HELP!! In February, we announced that the 9/11 Never Forget Mobile Exhibit was coming to Waupun (only its second visit to WI). Our fundraising efforts have fallen well short of where we need to be and we’re asking the community to please consider supporting this. The exhibit provides folks an opportunity to see artifacts, hear radio transmissions, and listen to a member of the FDNY talk about how events unfolded in front of them that day. We don’t want to miss out on this! Please help support our efforts to never forget 9/11!
