PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla., Sept. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — A newly constructed 9/11 Memorial will be unveiled at the Port St. Lucie Civic Center following an 8:30AM Remembrance Service on Tuesday, September 11, 2012 as an important reminder of the tragic events of September 11, 2001. The tribute monument design was approved by Port St. Lucie city officials and was designed and constructed with over $50,000 worth of donated services and materials according to Tonya Taylor, administrator of the Port St. Lucie Civic Center. The memorial features an actual 11-foot section of metal girder from the fallen World Trade Center and suspended above a fountain.
