Angel ornaments honor N.Y.C. rescue workers killed in terrorist attacks

Manufacturing Jewelers & Suppliers of America (MJSA), Providence, Rhode Island, in conjunction with the Bowling Green Association of New York, and that of two member companies created a remembrance for the rescue personnel lost in the collapse of the World Trade Center towers.

Using silver recovered from beneath the towers, two MJSA companies-LDC Inc., Providence, Rhode Island, and Morvillo & Sons in North Providence, Rhode Island,-have created 477 angel ornaments, which will be displayed on the famous Christmas tree at the end of Broadway, in the “shadow” of the now-lost towers. A lighting ceremony will take place on Dec. 10, with the families of the victims as honored guests. When the tree is taken down in January, each angel will be engraved and given to the families of the fallen. Fifty of the 477 angels will be presented to President Bush for the White House Christmas tree.
