If you've never been to the 9/11 Memorial at Southridge in Kennewick, you are really missing out.
According to organizers, the annual remembrance ceremony will commence this Saturday at 10:30 AM. Congressman Dan Newhouse will the keynote speaker.
It's important to remember the events of 9/11 and those who sacrificed their lives and continue to do so for our safety, security, and freedom.
If you are new to the Tri-Cities, here why the memorial site in Kennewick is so special:
The City of Kennewick was one of only a few communities throughout the entire United States that received a piece of steel from the World Trade Center and we are extremely proud to have this memorial in Kennewick.
For many, it has also become a destination point and we continue to receive numerous compliments and comments expressing appreciation that this memorial is accessible to our residents and visitors.
The memorial quickly grew into a community-wide volunteer project that had numerous local businesses and residents working in partnership and donating generously. The three-ton, 35-foot-tall monument was dedicated on September 11, 2011.
