Dedication for New Kinzua Bridge Visitors Center Next Week
I’m really looking forward to taking
part in next week’s dedication of the new Kinzua Bridge State Park
Visitors Center. The new center offers exhibits and information about
the history of our area, as well as the bridge. It includes 2,800 square
feet of space in two exhibit halls and a lobby, plus park offices,
public restrooms and classroom space. The dedication will be held at 1 p.m.Thursday, Sept. 15. Stay tuned next week for pictures!
Never Forget the Victims of Sept. 11, 2001
will mark the 15th anniversary of one of the worst days in our nation’s
history. On Sept. 11, 2001, nearly 3,000 men and women were killed in
devastating terrorist attacks in New York, Virginia and Pennsylvania.
The loved ones lost will be honored
and remembered in observances across the country, including one at
Pennsylvania’s own Flight 93 Memorial, near the site where one of
the four planes hijacked that day crashed. In addition to a luminaria
service on Saturday and observance on Sunday,
the National Park Service, which operates the memorial, is also
offering a free distance learning event to students and teachers in
grades 6-12 called “Action to Honor.” During the program, rangers from
the National Park Service will explain how the memorial honors the
Flight 93 passengers and crew, share their story and explore the
symbolism that can be found throughout the site today.
