WEST WARWICK, R.I. (WPRI) — In recognition of the 14th anniversary of the Station Nightclub Fire, members of the Station Fire Memorial Foundation will gather at 10:30 a.m. Monday at the site in West Warwick.

Following a prayer from Father Robert Marciano, co-chair of the capital campaign and survivor Gina Russo will give a review of construction progress.

Russo is also a member of the leadership committee of the capital campaign to raise $2 million for a lasting memorial.

The park, built in memory of the 100 who lost their lives in the fire, is expected to be complete by spring of 2017.

A formal dedication is planned once the park is finished.

Money continues to be raised to construct the permanent memorial.
