Sixteen years ago today, terrorists used airplanes to attack the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
Greenville Fire and EMS is hosting one of the local ceremonies to remember 9-11.
Chief Tim Lambie says they’re inviting people to gather at the town’s 9-11 memorial at the fire station. He says it has two pieces of steel from the World Trade Center, along with symbols from the Pentagon and the plane that went down in Pennsylvania.
The ceremony starts at 5:30 p.m.
Green Bay West high school is also holding a bleacher climb this morning to remember the victims, including the 343 firefighters who lost their lives. Students will walk the bleachers 11 times, the equivalent of one-tenth of the 110 stories of the World Trade Center towers. Firefighters are also bringing gear that the students can wear.
Pierce Manufacturing is hosting a stair climb at Lambeau Field on Saturday. The cost is $40 per person, and the proceeds will go to the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation.
