BENNINGTON -- Today marks the 12th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on our nation. Bennington, on the 10th anniversary of Sept. 11, dedicated a fitting memorial made from a block of white Danby marble and a piece of steel salvaged from the wreckage of the World Trade Center. The entire Bennington community gathered for the dedication ceremony on Sept. 11, 2011.
Last year marked the first anniversary of the Bennington 9-11 Memorial. The Bennington Rotary Club and VFW Post 1332 co-sponsor a small but impressive ceremony on Sept. 11, 2012.
This year individuals are encouraged to take a moment to stop by the 9-11 Memorial on their own and pay their respects to the memory of those who died in the attacks 12 years ago. Citizens are encouraged to leave a wreath, floral arrangement or memento in recognition of the events which happened on Sept. 11, 2001, according to the Bennington Rotary Club.
