In Green Township, trustees held a service for the dedication of a 9/11 memorial.
Attendees observed a moment of silence at 8:46 a.m. in memory of the exact moment 12 years ago when an airline struck the North Tower of the World Trade Center. A piece of the tower is now in Green Township.
"I decided it was time that we get this out and allow the public to view it, to touch it, to see it and kind of be a memorial of what happened those years ago," explained Green Township Trustee Rocky Boiman.
About 30 Delta airline employees joined a national movement in Cheviot to turn a day of sorrow into a day of service by helping Habitat for Humanity build a home.
