ASL Interpreted Event
This is a public, interpreted event organized by the Major Brent Taylor Foundation. (The Foundation was established by the wife of Mayor Taylor of North Ogden City after he was killed in action in Afghanistan a few years ago.) Jennie Taylor, the mayor’s wife, has put together a 20th anniversary commemoration project for 9/11 this year. It’s a self-paced, open house, walk-through museum experience. The word Jennie has been using to describe it is “immersive.” There are a lot of huge pictures and visual displays of that nature. There are also sound clips of 9-1-1 calls and last phone calls, along with videos of news clips and such. The range of content is such that a thoughtful adult could spend an hour or more walking through the displays, but a child can also enjoy looking at the pictures. There are also food trucks and kids’ activities outside the museum portion. So it’s definitely a “whole family” exhibit.
The event will take place at the Weber County Fairgrounds at the following times:
- Thursday, September 9 @ 4-8 p.m.
- Friday, September 10 @ 4-8 p.m.
- Saturday, September 11 @ 10 a.m. – 8 p.m.
There will be a certified interpreter available during all of these hours to interpret all audio content in the museum, as well as any interactions that arise. They will be there at the beginning of the museum at the top of every hour to walk through with any Deaf who have arrived, then report back to the front for the next people.
