CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. — Former Pennsylvania Gov. Mark S. Schweiker will speak Saturday during a ceremony to dedicate a Sept. 11 memorial at Letterkenny Army Depot.
The ceremony, which is open to the public, will begin at 3 p.m. adjacent to the Letterkenny Chapel at 2171 Carbaugh Ave.
Three steel artifacts recovered from the World Trade Center were fashioned into a sculpture that will serve as a permanent memorial to the thousands who died in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
The sculpture first was unveiled to the public at a memorial service in downtown Chambersburg last September.
Schweiker was Pennsylvania’s 44th governor and ascended to the position when then-Gov. Tom Ridge became the first director of theU.S. Department of Homeland Security.
“It does my heart good that people and organizations like this one in Franklin County are committed to ensuring that we will never forget the events — and the American heroes, victims and survivors — of that tragic day,” Schweiker said in a news release.
