Traveling 9/11 memorial exhibit to come to Rock Island
July 19-23, free public admission
This year marks the 15th anniversary of 9/11. Modern Woodmen of America’s Be an Everyday Hero project remembers and honors those lost, while recognizing the brave first responders, military members and others who continue to serve our community every day.
Modern Woodmen is sponsoring free public admission to the 9/11 Never Forget Mobile Exhibit, a traveling museum created to honor Stephen Siller, a New York City firefighter who lost his life on 9/11. The 1,000-square-foot memorial, packed into a high-tech 53-foot tractor-trailer, includes artifacts, videos and live tours from FDNY firefighters. It travels the country as an educational resource and poignant reminder of that tragic day.
The exhibit will be parked at the west lot of Schwiebert Riverfront Park in downtown Rock Island, Illinois, next to Modern Woodmen's home office.
Hours of admission:
Tuesday, July 19, 9:30 a.m. - 8 p.m.
