Additional fundraising is now underway to make the 9/11 Reflection Park a reality that will serve as a community centerpiece for decades to come. The committee has created a variety of opportunities to become involved, including direct cash donations, "in-kind" donations of materials and services, purchasing engraved pavers as a permanent part of the site and purchasing coins that commemorate the 9/11 Reflection Park.
West Pierce has a desire to truly honor this historic artifact while creating an appropriate space for reflection and the generosity of West Pierce employees and local citizens will accomplish that.
The groundbreaking ceremony for this project will take place on Tuesday, July 3rd at 11:30 a.m. at Station 31, and construction will begin the following week.
