CLINTON — Wild Rose Casino and Resort will host the 9/11 Never Forget mobile exhibit this year.
The mobile exhibit will be escorted through Clinton to Wild Rose on May 31, and will be open from 1 to 7 p.m. June 1 through 3.
There will be a special performance by Lee Greenwood on June 2.
Stephen Siller, a New York City firefighter, was unable to drive through the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel on Sept. 11, 2001. Determined to carry out his duty, he strapped 60 pounds of gear to his back, and raced on foot to the Twin Towers, sacrificing his life to save others.
His family established the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation in his honor and in 2013, they launched the 9/11 Never Forget mobile exhibit. This is a high-tech, 53-foot tractor trailer that transforms into a 1,000 square foot exhibit. It includes steel beams from the towers, documentary videos, and recordings of first responder radio transmissions. Admission is free.
On June 2, country singer Lee Greenwood will perform at 8 p.m. Greenwood has more than 30 albums to his credit, seven No. 1 songs, and 25 charted singles. His hits include: “It Turns Me Inside Out,” “She’s Lyin,” “Dixie Road,” “Ring On Her Finger Time On My Hand,” and “God Bless The USA.”
Tickets will be available for purchase through the Iowa Store Gift Shop at Wild Rose Casino and Resort in Clinton, by calling (800) 457-9975 or going online at www.clinton.wildroseresorts.com/entertain.
