Reflections on “courage,” bagpipes and a bell ceremony highlighted a Sept. 11 service at the San Luis Obispo World Trade Center Memorial on Monday.
This ceremony also featured singing by students in the San Luis Coastal school district, plus fifth-grade artwork and a poem that won an eighth-grade writing contest. The 2017 Boys’ and Girls’ state representatives at San Luis Obispo High School presented reflections on “courage.”
The memorial at Fire Station 1, designed by artist Kathleen Caricof, pays tribute to the emergency workers who died with 403 metal posts embedded in an arc. Dedicated in 2015, it also features a 1,500-pound steel beam from the World Trade Center.
