The West Islip Chamber of Commerce is hosting a dedication Saturday for the newly constructed 9/11 Memorial.
The ceremony will take place at the memorial at 9 a.m., on the corner of Higbie Lane and Paumanake Avenue. A complimentary breakfast will immediately follow. Attendees are asked to park at Boyd Spencer Funeral Home.
Originally scheduled near Veteran's Day, the unveiling was postponed following the damage of Superstorm Sandy.
A piece of steel from the World Trade Center will serve as the centerpiece of the memorial, in remembrance of those who lost their lives and were affected by the tragedy.
For the past few months, the chamber has been selling engraved bricks to help support the construction of the monument.
