The Palm Coast Fire Department is hosting a remembrance ceremony and dedication of the Survivor Tree, tonight, Saturday 11,2021 at 6:30 p.m at Heroes Memorial Park in Palm Coast. The community is invited to attend.
The 10-foot seedling of the September 11th Survivor Tree was received by the Palm Coast Fire Department from the 9/11 Memorial Museum. The tree itself became known as the “Survivor Tree” after enduring the terror attacks at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. The tree was rehabilitated and returned to the Memorial in 2010. The tree is a testament as a living reminder of the resilience, survival, and rebirth of the American people.
“Heroes Memorial Park is the optimum place to add the survivor tree, as it now sits alongside the September 11th memorial there,” Fire Department Lt. Patrick Juliano said. “The tree is a remarkable reminder of resilience and survival. It’s a living reminder that through tragedy there is rebirth.”
