Abington to dedicate 9/11 Memorial in September

A 206-pound piece of steel salvaged from the rubble that once was the World Trade Center, will be made into a memorial in front of the Abington police station in Abingdon, MA. The memorial should open in time for the fifteenth anniversary of the attacks.

It is a project of Abingdon resident Christie Coombs, whose husband, Jeff Coombs, was killed while a passenger aboard American Airlines Flight 11 during the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, reports Maria Papadopoulos of The Enterprise.

““It’s kind of a gift to Abington,” said Coombs.”
