EVESHAM, NJ – Local officials dedicated the township September 11 memorial last weekend in front of the Main Street Firehouse.

The memorial features a 13-foot long section of twisted steel, one of the longest pieces donated for memorials from World Trade Center debris in New York City.

The memorial honors all 2,977 [sic – 2,973] victims, including Evesham resident LeRoy Homer. He was the co-pilot of hijacked United Airlines Flight 93, which crashed in Shanksville, Pa. on September 11, 2001. The statue base carries a star for each victim.

Mayor Randy Brown said the monument “brings us together, makes us remember” and will serve as an education tool for our youth.” Councilman Bob DiEnna coordinated the project.

The memorial can be visited at any time at the Main Street Firehouse. Dedication photos are at www.Facebook.com/EveshamTownship.
