9/11 Memorial and Museum Opens in Illinois

Published: February 20, 2014

On September 11, the Carol Stream, IL, Fire Department marked the opening of its new 9/11 Memorial & Museum with a memorial ceremony. The Local 265 Labor Management Cooperative Committee (John Boske) partnered with Gengler Lowney Laser Works (Jack Gengler), a signatory contractor with Local 265, to contribute the two stainless steel plaques embedded in the floor of the museum. Gary Rasmussen, the local fire inspector, got the idea when he was doing a yearly inspection at Local 265 and saw a stainless steel plaque on the wall that Gengler Lowney Laser Works had also done.
