A piece of a tower from the World Trade Center, incorporated into a Yuma memorial, will commemorate the lives lost in the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. During a Wednesday morning ceremony at E.F. Sanguinetti Fire Station No. 1, 353 S. 3rd Ave. Waterford, the Yuma Fire Department unveiled a memorial built with a section of I-beam recovered from one of the twin towers. Another ceremony occurred at the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1763 headquarters, 2485 E. 14th Street, included a flag raising, which was then lowered to half staff, and the ringing of a bell in memory of the three sites where planes crashed on Sept. 11, 2001.
