Stair climb honors lives lost in 9/11

You may have felt harder hit by this year’s September 11th than in recent years because it’s the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, and you’re not alone as the Door County Maritime Museum and Pioneer Fire Company put on a 9/11 stair climb on Saturday. Firefighters, EMS personnel, and other participants walked up and down the eleven flights of stairs at the museum ten times, representing the 110-story walk up the World Trade Center. 


In a ceremony before the walk started, the pastor at the Sturgeon Bay Moravian Church, Matthew Knapp, recalled the unity the day brought to Sturgeon Bay, saying people overflowed Memorial Field.



Knapp also discussed how he would like to see that unity restored, in Sturgeon Bay and beyond.
