BEACON, N. Y. -- Beacon resident Stacy Dedring, who helped distribute food to firefighters after the World Trade Center was attacked on 9/11, said she's glad to have a piece of steel in serve as a reminder of the terrorist attacks, according to Time Warner Cable News.

Members of Beacon's Elks Lodge recently learned that they'd get the last steel beam from the destroyed twin towers. Elks member Carl Oken said club members were very interested in having the beam for display, particularly because it had special carvings of crosses and Stars of David, Time Warner Cable News says.

Dedring, who worked with the Salvation Army after the attacks, said it was difficult making the move from New York City to Beacon because of her emotional connection to Ground Zero. But having the beam in Beacon will help, she told Time Warner Cable News.
