Ceremonies will take place all over the country to honor those killed in the 9/11 attacks fourteen years ago. Winnebago County is holding a special dedication at its newest memorial.
Two steel beams salvaged from the World Trade Center will be placed in the Winnebago County 9/11 Emergency Responders Memorial. The park-like memorial is a work in progress and sits next to the County Justice Center in Rockford. It’s expected to be completed in time for next year’s 15th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.
