The IMAG History & Science Center will be holding a 9/11 Remembrance Ceremony on Saturday, September 11, 2021, at 11:00 AM commemorating the 20th Anniversary of September 11, 2001. The event will feature guest speakers, a dedication of a 9/11 Memorial stone sculpture from the World Trade Center, and a 9/11 Memorial display. Founder, artist, and sculptor of Project 911UP, Sandra Priest, of St. James City, generously donated the stone sculpture which is created from a piece of the slurry wall salvaged from Ground Zero. “The experience of seeing and touching this memorial,” said Ms. Priest, “is important to restoring hope and rebuilding our spirits as a people and a nation.”
Free and open to the public, all are invited to take part in this distinguished observance. The 9/11 Remembrance Ceremony will be held at the IMAG History and Science Center at 2000 Cranford Avenue, Fort Myers at 11:00 AM. Earlier on Saturday morning at 8:30 AM, there is also a remembrance ceremony being planned by the City of Fort Myers Fire Department at the Caloosa Sound Convention Center at 1375 Monroe Street which is likewise open and free to the public.
