Piece of the World Trade Center heads to Gander Newfoundland
« on: September 08, 2016, 05:15:36 PM »
     It is hard to believe that it has been 15 years since the 9/11 attacks.  From the attached you'll see that NY is sending a piece of one of the Centers to Gander in recognition of what that small town did for those passengers who were diverted there when the planes were diverted there and then grounded.

We visited Gander several years ago and found the people to  be warm, friendly and completely deserve all and any recognition for their warmth to passengers who were  grounded in a scary moment of history.  I'd like to visit again!
