9/11 artifact at Yamouth police station

The Register

The Yarmouth [Massachusetts] Police Department recently received a 9/11 artifact, a twisted 3-foot, 175-pound section of a solid steel I-beam that was recovered from the World Trade Center after [the] September 11 terrorist attack. A public viewing was held Saturday.

Yarmouth police officers Albert Sprague, Michael Bryant, Nicholas Giammarco, and Steven Xiarhos drove to New York City to pick up the beam at the JohnF.KennedyInternationalAirport. The Yarmouth Police Relief Association and the Yarmouth Community Advisory Team are developing plans to display the special piece of American history in the lobby of Yarmouth Police Headquarters with the eventual goal of building and dedicating a memorial garden on the grounds to be dedicated September 11 of this year.

Anyone who would like to assist in helping to build a memorial is asked to contact Sprague by asprague@yarmouth.ma.us or call 508-775-0445, ext. 2136.
