SALT LAKE CITY — To mark the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks, the Major Brent Taylor Foundation is planning a special tribute to honor the lives lost.

Jennie Taylor, the widow of Maj. Brent Taylor, wants to continue her husband’s legacy of service, which is why she is organizing Weber Remembers 9/11 — an interactive commemorative museum experience highlighting the events of Sept. 11, 2001, and its lasting impact on the country.

It is free of charge and schools can schedule field trips for students.

Among the events will be a sunrise flag ceremony and a memorial motorcycle ride.

Taylor has partnered with local law enforcement, military and firefighters to bring this project to life.

“I think it’s important for us to step back after 20 years, to look at that and think, what do we remember? Yes, we remember the horror of that day. We remember the emotion, the tragedy, everything that was awful. We also remember how we came together as neighbors and friends,” Taylor said.

Taylor is also inviting the community to be part of this project. She is looking for volunteers to help on Sept. 9, 10 and 11 at the Weber County Fairgrounds.

You can sign up for two-hour shifts or all day if you’d like.
