One must-see highlight of this year’s Clay County Fair is the 9/11 Never Forget Mobile Exhibit, which is open daily from 12-6 p.m.
The museum, a 53-foot tractor-trailer that expands into a 1,000-square-foot exhibit, educates visitors about the events that occurred on September 11, 2001. It’s a moving tribute to those who lost their lives that day, including the 343 FDNY members who made the ultimate sacrifice.
On Wednesday, on the 18th anniversary of 9/11, community members gathered near the mobile exhibit, which is located next to the events center, for a prayer service.
Almost 3,000 people were killed in the 9/11 attacks at the World Trade Center and at the Pentagon.
As the volunteers who travel with the exhibit pointed out Wednesday, many first-responders and community members have since died of or are still suffering from health complications related to the attack.
