MKFD Makes Progress on 9/11 Memorial; Receives Gift of $25,000

The Mount Kisco Fire Department continues to make progress on completing Mount Kisco’s 9/11 Memorial. After the planning and the initial groundbreaking (pictured below), construction began and Mount Kisco’s bravest volunteers built the block foundation up to street level.

The 9/11 Memorial Project will be built economically by volunteers in the construction and pool businesses with manpower from the MKFD. The MKFD, however, will have to raise funds as the current design of the memorial will have two slabs of black granite to symbolize the World Trade Center towers and a pentangular pool to memorialize the victims of the attack on the Pentagon.

To help the MKFD towards their goal, Daniele Churchill, owner of Churchill’s of Mount Kisco donated $25,000 to Mount Kisco’s 9/11 Memorial Fund. Ms. Churchill will present the donation to the Mount Kisco Fire Department at Village Hall before the February 7, 2010 Village Board of Trustees Meeting.

The MKFD is looking for other donations and is, among other fundraising projects, raffling off a 2010 Camaro.
