AURORA – The exhibit commemorating the one-year anniversary of the loss of life at the Henry Pratt Company in 2019 is being extended until March 14.
“There has been considerable interest in the exhibit,” Aurora Historical Society executive director John Jaros said in a news release from the Aurora Historical Society. “We hope to make sure everyone who wants to pay their respects at the crosses and view the memorabilia and the thank-you posters sent to the police and fire departments will have a chance to do so.”
The display was originally set to close Feb. 29. Within the exhibit, the city of Aurora has provided note cards and envelopes which the public may use to share their thoughts with the families and the first responders. Cards will be collected when the exhibit closes and distributed to those named.
The exhibit is on display at the Pierce Art and History Center at 20 E. Downer Place in downtown Aurora. The center is open from noon to 4 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays.
Admission is free, but donations are appreciated.
