Dear Friends and Colleagues,

When the World Trade Center Memorial Foundation began less than a year ago it was asked to raise the money to build, own and operate the Memorial and the Museum at Ground Zero. 

Today, we officially began to build the Memorial.  This morning at 8 a.m. laborers and carpenters arrived. Their initial site preparation work will take approximately 4-8 weeks and include debris removal, engineering and surveying work, delivery of construction materials, as well as protection of the box beam columns of the original Twin Towers. No concrete will be poured.  While not dramatic work, it is important and necessary, and signals a true beginning. 

We invite you to continue to follow the building progress on our website http://www.buildthememorial.org/ where today we posted two beautiful new renderings of what the Memorial will become when it opens in 2009. 

This was a momentous day - real and substantive. Thank you for your support.

Best regards,

Gretchen Dykstra
President & CEO
World Trade Center Memorial Foundation

Let us never forget.
