Geocache Description:

Sunday, April 14th. 2013, was an emotional day in Wauseon.
Ground was broken for a 9/11 Memorial site at the Fulton County Fairgrounds.

The centerpiece is a beam from the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center.

First responders from throughout Fulton County gathered for the solemn ceremony. All placed their equipment at the foot of the beam, which to them is a sacred artifact from one of the worst days in American history.

$100,000 was raised to build the memorial.

The fairgrounds site was chosen because nearly 300,000 people come here annually.

The 9/11 Memorial will be in the shape of an octagon, the symbol for re-birth and starting over. Names of those who lost their lives to terrorism on 9/11 will be engraved at the base.

The memorial will be open 24/7, allowing anybody to see and touch the beam at anytime. Folks in Fulton County are proud to have the memorial be part of their patriotic community.

For the solution, you will see a large letter and 4 large numbers in green on the side of the beam.
Ignore the letter "J".
Add the first two-digit number to the North, and the second two-digit number to the West
to these coordinates: N 41 35.838 W 84 08.908
