SHAMOKIN — Monuments crafted with steel from the Twin Towers that were destroyed 20 years ago were donated by the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation to Coal Township and the City of Shamokin during a memorial service at Claude Community Park.

The monuments, measuring about 2 feet high and engraved with the words “WTC, 9/11, Never Forget,” were unveiled by long-time city firefighter and former councilman R. Craig Rhoades and retired New York City firefighter Anthony Tomesheski, both of whom now work for the foundation.
