Dear FOS11 member,

Below you will find a link to the recent update from Mayor Bloomberg about recent progress on the World Trade Center Memorial as well as information about an opportunity to be involved and sign the first steel beams for the Freedom Tower on December 17th.

We understand that the process of memorializing at Ground Zero has been long and difficult, and that we each have personal opinions about this very public structure.  We recognize that there may not be comfort or agreement with all the decisions that have been made.  With that in mind, FOS11 is committed to providing information, resources and community as we continue on the path of rebuilding.
