Coming to Coral Springs September 11th and 12th, 2018
The terrorist attacks that took place on September 11, 2001 left an indelible mark upon our nation and its history. In the aftermath of such tragedy came renewed faith in preserving the memory and actions of those who lost their lives on that day. One of those initiatives is the 9/11 NEVER FORGET Mobile Exhibit. Launched in 2013 by the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation, the exhibit, which is housed in a 1,000 square foot trailer - is a tribute and educational tool that travels across the country.
Our City’s Police and Fire Pension Administrator Gina Orlando, who once worked on the 98th floor of the World Trade Center, has been involved in 9/11 based education and fundraisers since the attacks. Through her efforts, the City of Coral Springs is bringing the exhibit to our community for residents and students to visit on September 11 and 12, 2018.
The exhibit will be located in the parking area between the Public Safety Building and Coral Springs Gymnasium (located at 2601 Coral Springs Drive). Pre-scheduled students from Coral Springs schools will visit the exhibit each morning, with public viewing on 9/11 from 2-8 p.m. and on September 12 from 4-8 p.m.
Of the exhibit, Gina says, “Look at all of the good that can come from such tragedy.The attacks on 9/11 showed how our communities can come together to heal, promote volunteerism and help others.”
Additional details about the mobile exhibit’s ceremonial arrival, our 9/11 memorial service and scheduling will continue to be updated at here and on our Facebook event. Residents are encouraged to text 888-777 with the key word – 911EXHIBIT to receive updates on the event.
