To The Herald-Whig:

What a wonderful and moving 9/11 ceremony at City Hall last Sunday afternoon!

Our thanks to all who worked to create this marvelous dedication ceremony. We congratulate the committee and all the participants and sponsors. The music was excellent throughout and the speakers told their stories well.

Many times we were moved to smiles and tears. We invite all to stop by City Hall to view the World Trade Center tower artifact. It supported the antennae which had been built by Harris Corp. here in Quincy. The WTC Artifact Committee was composed of Mayor John Spring, Police Chief Robert Copley, Fire Chief Joseph Henning, Jr., EMS Chief J. Paul Davis and City Engineer Jeff Steinkamp.
