Sheet Metal becomes a sponsor of the 2010 Memorial Day service in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. It was an emotional and sentimental
day on Friday May 28, 2010 where thousands of individuals gathered to show support for their country and the victims involved
in the 9/11 attack.
The event began at New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport where two massive columns
gathered from a hanger, which sat along thousands of other World Trade Center fragments, were transported by West Gate Sheet
Metal drivers, Jonathan Sterling and Sean Craft. The two drivers carefully transported the beams all the way to Palm Beach
Gardens, Florida. On Memorial Day, the metal was moved by West Gate representatives and escorted by a 6 mile procession of
motorcycles, police cars and fire trucks. The ceremony featured bagpipes, a student chorus and thousands of individuals watching
this historical and touching event.
of the two pieces of steel will be at the soon to be constructed memorial located at the Palm Beach Gardens Fire Station #3,
designed by artist Mark Fuller. The monument will include a list of nearly 3,000 9/11 victims etched in glass, lighting, brick
walkways and landscaping, as seen by the pictures below. A firefighter symbol will be placed next to the names of all firefighters
and police officers killed.
President of West Gate Sheet Metal, is proud of all his men and those who assisted in the project. He states “this is
just another way of doing our part to lending a helping hand to the community and assisting the country back to recovery.”
