Piece of 9-11 will be in Price Thursday
For those that have never been to Ground Zero in New York, something close to it is coming to Price.
On Thursday a piece of cement block that was removed from the slurry wall at Ground Zero under the World Trade Center will arrive in the area. It will eventually be sculpted into a work of art.
Not only can people see the exhibit, but they can also help accompany it into town that afternoon. Local motorcycle riders will meet in Smith's parking lot at 2:30 p.m. on that day and then they will proceed to the Horse Canyon rest area on Highway 6 south of Sunnyside Junction. There the riders will meet the exhibit. The riders and the entourage of vehicles will then head toward Price, picking up various officials vehicles along the way. The exhibit will also be accompanied by the Utah National Guard Battalion 1457 and 624 Engineer Company. The entire group will arrive at the Peace Gardens in Price at about 4 p.m. The exhibit will be set up from 4:15 to 4:45 p.m. at which time the exhibit will begin. It will run until about 7 p.m.
While on display those from the community are encouraged to touch the block and get photos of it.
A program will be held at 6 p.m. After the program the motorcycle group will escort the exhibit to Castle Gate along with Helper City.
Its next stop will be in Vernal. The display has already covered a large part of the state from Logan to St. George. The tour will end on Monday with a display in Sandy.
