Please join the U. S. Space Walk of Fame Foundation Friday, July 17, 2009 for the dedication of the Apollo Monument in Space View Park downtown Titusville. Dedication ceremony begins at 10:00am and is expected to last 45 minutes to an hour. Astronaut Al Worden and special guests are scheduled to be on hand for the festivities.

The Apollo monument designed by artist Sandy Storm of Merritt Island was built to honor the space workers and astronauts of the Apollo Program who made exploring the moon a reality. Twelve bronze panels will surround the base of the monument telling the Apollo story. On permanent display at Apollo are bronzed handprints of all the living Apollo Astronauts, where young and old alike can put their hands in the handprints of men who walked on the moon. Raised bronze profiles, by Artist Sandy Storm, are there for those astronauts who have died.
