North Lauderdale will commemorate the Sept. 11 attacks around a makeshift monument from rocks and debris flown down from New York.

The city is one of 30 across the country – and the sole municipality in Florida – to request samples from the crash site in Shanksville, Pa., for public memorials. MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa also has rock and debris from the field where United Flight 93 crashed after crew and passengers tried to overcome the hijackers. The base’s collection is private.

The U.S. Department of the Interior’s National Park Service operates the Flight 93 National Memorial.

“We think it’s important to remember what happened on Sept. 11, and people don’t have to go to Washington to remember that,” Michael Sargis, assistant city manager, told the Sun-Sentinel.

The ceremony is slated for 10 a.m. on Sept. 11 in the municipal complex breezeway at 701 Southwest 71st Avenue. The event is free to the public. [Sun-Sentinel]Mark Maurer
