World Trade Center bell tolls for 9-11

A brief but solemn ceremony will take place Monday, Sept. 11, in Sandy Harbor--the toning of a bell cast from metal from the World Trade Center.

Members of the Sandy Harbor Volunteer Fire Department (SHVFD) will welcome their neighbors at 9:45 a.m. for a ceremony that will end with the toning of the bell at 9:46 a.m.

The bell was donated by a supporter of the SHVFD whose cousin, a New York firefighter, lost is life in the towers' collapse.

"As first responders, our volunteers want to recognize the many sacrifices made by emergency personnel and so many others on this tragic day," said Douglas Hindelang of the department. "Please feel free to join us for a short period of reflection and prayer.

The SHVFD is located at 203 Granite Shoals Drive in Horseshoe Bay.
