Steelworkers memorial to be held

Steelworkers who lost their lives in area mills will be remembered at separate events on Thursday.

The men and women who died while working for the Weirton Steel Corp. will be remembered by USW Local 2911 during a service planned for 9 a.m. at Steelworkers Memorial Park, located at the corner of Pennsylvania Avenue and County Road, Weirton.

At 10:30 a.m., representatives of former USW Local 1190 will remember those who lost their lives while working at the Wheeling-Pittsburgh Steel Corp. facilities in our region. That service will be held at the Ohio Valley Steelworker sculpture located across from the main branch of the Public Library of Steubenville and Jefferson County, 407 S. Fourth St., Steubenville.
