Here is the Tri-County Times announcement of the project:
The project began unknowingly on September 11, 2015 in just saying thanks to our local firemen for what they do. Fenton Memorials donated an stone with an etching of the Fire Department logo on it. On that day, Chief Cairnduff said something like: You know, we have a piece of steel here from the Twin Towers that we just don’t know how to display. The donation of this small thank-you stone led to the 9/11 Memorial at the Fenton Fire Department.
