The Oak Lawn Rotary Club is hosting a remembrance ceremony honoring the first responders of Sept. 11, 2001.
The ceremony starts at 7:46 a.m. on Tuesday, September 11, the moment that the first hijacked plane flew into the World Trade Center eleven years ago. The public is encouraged to attend.
A brief prayer service will be held at the site of the 9/11 First Responders Monument at the Oak Lawn Metra Station at 95th Street and Museum Drive. The monument includes four beams from the fallen World Trade Center.
Afterward, the public is invited for a tour of the “We the People” exhibit at the Children’s Museum in Oak Lawn adjacent to the monument at 5100 Museum Drive. The exhibit also includes two small beam pieces from the World Trade Center towers.
