SPENCER, W.Va. (AP) - The upcoming Black Walnut Festival in Spencer is set to feature a traveling 9/11 exhibit.

Local media outlets report that the “Never Forget” exhibit will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday and Saturday at Heritage Park on Church Street.

The mobile exhibit is a 1,000-square-foot museum honoring the ordinary men and women who performed extraordinary bravery on Sept. 11, 2001. Appropriate for all ages, it is developed by the Fire Department of New York to inspire and educate visitors about what the first responders on 9/11 did and rekindle support for first responders nationwide.

Festival President Ray Dietz says he hopes festival-goers will view the exhibit and be reminded of the heroism of the 9/11 first responders.
