Chester County continues to provide great opportunities for residents and visitors to get out and enjoy themselves. Here are just a few events you should look out for as the summer starts slipping away!
Remembering Our Heroes
What follows are events that will take place in Chester County on September 11.
Coatesville Remembers 9/11 — 20th Anniversary Commemoration
National Iron and Steel Heritage Museum
50 S 1st Ave, Coatesville PA 19320
Saturday, September 11th, 8:30 – 10:30 am
On September 11, 2001, the country was numb. Thousands were lost in the attacks on the Big Apple’s World Trade Center. We bled with New York. From Oppermans Corner to Byers Station, we all know exactly where we were when tragedy struck. We and our neighbors will come together at the National Iron and Steel Heritage Museum on the 20th anniversary to remember. We’ll gather at the Steelworker’s Memorial, the site of a trident recovered from the World Trade Center site. Details for the program are yet released.
For the benefit of the Wounded Warrior Project, there’ll be a 5K run/1-mile walk. It takes place between Market and Church Streets in West Chester. Your support will employ, empower, and engage this country’s injured vets. The event is not only a remembrance of 9/11 in New York but of the 9/11 in 1777 when the American Revolution had its longest battle right here in Brandywine. The event, whether you show up to walk, run, cheer, or support with donations is a stupendous way to thank the warriors and their families.
