Remembering 9/11

Posted

Flowers were placed on a 9/11 monument in downtown Castle Rock on Sept. 11, 2019. The monument was created in 2017 by that year's class graduating from Leadership Douglas County. The chamber of commerce program encourages and trains people to take on leadership roles in their community.

The 22 graduating members in 2017 designed and planned the monument to honor those who died or were impacted by the terrorist attacks of 2001. The bulk of the monument comprises a steel pipe that was part of the World Trade Center.

The monument is located outside the fire department's headquarters at 300 Perry St. and was first suggested by department Chief Christopher McCarthy. McCarthy worked as a paramedic in Brooklyn at the time of the attacks and lost 17 friends in the tragedy.
