Volunteers sought to serve on Gilbert 9/11 Memorial Committee and to host fundraisers to support effort:

The town has acquired an eight foot long, 1,500 pound beam from the World Trade Center through the long time efforts of the Town Manager Collin DeWitt. With the 10-year remembrance approaching, a community committee has been formed to help funds to build a Gilbert 9/11 Memorial.

"This was a very solemn and respected operation," DeWitt said. "This is something children will be able to touch, something we plan to mount and have as a memorial for every September 11th; a place we can assemble every year to remember, and memorialize that sacrifice."

The Town is seeking additional Gilbert citizens to participate on the 9/11 Memorial Committee. To learn more about the commitment and to get involved, call the Town at (480) 503-6353.

The beam will be on display throughout Gilbert during festivals and community events to help with fundraising.

If you would like to donate, please make check payable to 911 Memorial Fund.
