CLOVIS, California (KSEE/KGPE) – Wednesday marks 18 years since nearly 3,000 lives were lost in the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001.
The California 9/11 Memorial in Clovis will unveil a major expansion, just in time for the 18th anniversary — replicas of the Twin Towers and the Pentagon.
The $350,000 project also has a bronze sculpture. The memorial will also become ADA compliant and now everyone will have access.
“Our community can come together as one and celebrate the bravery of first responders who perished that day as well as make sure the younger generations do know what happened,” said California 9/11 Memorial Executive Director Anna Borgeas.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony will happen at 4 p.m. on Monday.
