Fulton County to break ground for 9/11 Memorial Project
WAUSEON - A ground breaking ceremony for the Fulton County 9/11 Memorial Project will be held on April 14 at 2 p.m. at the Fulton County Fairgrounds, North East Entrance.
The Fulton County 9/11 Memorial Committee would be unjust if we said that we don't have mixed emotions regarding the ground breaking event. Our journey has been one far beyond the honor of receiving and memorializing a piece of steel from one of the towers.
In February of 2011, Wauseon Asst Chief Rick Sluder announced at the County Association Dinner that an Artifact from the 9/11 Terrorist Attack had been awarded to Wauseon Fire Department and that department voted to extend the recipient list to all the Fulton County Fire Departments, Law Enforcement Agencies and Veterans.
