Building a Monument to First Responders

Hands cast in bronze depict First Responders

These photos show bronze hands after they have been removed from the molds. To ensure that the molten bronze filled every crevice of the mold, you see different channels coming off the fingertips. These are removed in the final version. The final sculptural pieces will be assembled together to form two grand spires rising to the sky.

The Spires will rise above two of four beams from the World Trade Center that the Village acquired in December for this purpose. They will honor our First Responders of the past, present and future.

If you like what you see, please consider a donation. Donations may be made to:

The Oak Lawn Rotary Club
PO Box 612
Oak Lawn, IL 60454

Also, please plan on attending the Dedication on September 11, 2011 in the morning.
