The Township of Brick will be presented with a piece of steel from the World Trade Center at a special ceremony at Windward Beach Park at 10:30 a.m.  The artifact will be presented by Bill Baroni, Deputy Executive Director of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.

Mayor Steve Acropolis, who’s lobbied for a while to get a piece of steel in town for a while says “we are grateful to have been chosen to receive a part of the World Trade Center.  Brick Township was greatly affected by the terrorist attacks.”

In addition, Acropolis says “many of our police officer and first aid emergency responders helped at the site in the weeks and months following the attack.  This artifact will help make sure that our community will never forget.”

The 118-pound piece of steel measures 41″ L x 21″ W x 14″ H.  The Township plans on placing the artifact on permanent display near the Angel in Anguish Monument to the victims of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks at Windward Beach Park.

The Angel in Anguish at Windward Beach is Brick Township’s everlasting monument to the memory of the Brick Township citizens lost in the attacks.  The monument was installed in 2002 for the first anniversary of the terrorist attacks.  A new bronze monument was created to replace the original monument and was rededicated in 2010.

The monument bears the name of the eight residents of Brick Township who were killed: John Badagliacca, Brett Bailey, Robert Devitt, Michael Diehl, John Perconti, James Sands, Thomas Sgroi and Christopher Traina.
