Community Raises Money to Build 9/11 Monument
In an effort to help raise funds for the Farmingdale Community Summit Council, which is erecting the "Farmingdale Remembers Its Communities' Heroes" monument on the grounds of the Farmingdale Public Library to honor all local heroes connected to the September 11 tragedy, residents from all over the community have been purchasing World Trade Center commemorative pieces, equipped with a candle holder, from a local resident. Mary Ellen Hribok, who was looking for a way to help the Summit Council in their efforts to raise the necessary funds to build and install the monument, noticed a metal World Trade Center commemorative candle holder/figure and called the company who distributes the pieces. Much to her surprise, Hribok learned that the company, which she found out was F&M Precise Metals, was located in Farmingdale.
