There is a special memorial in Meaford to mark the 11th anniversary of the 9-11 attacks.
The Meaford and District Fire Department will unveil the 9-11 Firefighters Memorial on Tuesday night.
The ceremony will begin at 7 PM and the public is invited.
As we first told you months ago -- the fire department was one of only six in Canada to secure a support beam from the World Trade Centre in New York City.
The steel beam is about 20 feet in length and weighs a tonne.
It will be unveiled outside the Fire Hall on Stewart Street in Meaford.
The fire department fundraised to have the memorial site designed and constructed as a resting place for the artifact.
