WEST YARMOUTH - Yarmouth police again seeking the public's assistance--this time for a very important project. On Sunday morning, officers will gather to plant the garden around the department's 9/11 memorial and they need your help.

Volunteers are asked to bring a shovel and hopes for warm weather (the forecast says 55 and partly sunny). The planting will begin at 10 a.m.

The memorial is set in a wooded area between the station and Mattacheese Middle School. About 150 small plants will be arranged around an actual girder from the World Trade Center.

The memorial garden honors the victims and first responders of the attack on the World Trade Center towers on September 11, 2001.

The Yarmouth Police Station is at One Brad Erickson Way in West Yarmouth.
