9/11 Memorial Display attributed to Chuck Pore, and Central Oregon Rodders' Parade honor memory of 9/11

9/11 tributePHOTO CONTIBUTED BY MONA AND ROLAND GLADE - The display by Rick Steber-Makers gained a number of items donated by Roland and Mona Glade to honor the hard work of Chuck Pore, who was deeply moved by the events of 9/11 and the lives lost.

Extending through the week and up until Sept. 11, a 9/11 Memorial Tribute Display was available for the public to give tribute to those lost in the Twin Towers and associated attacks on 9/11.

The display is attributed to Chuck Pore, who was a Lake County Deputy Sheriff during the horrific events of Sept. 11, 2001. He was deeply moved by the events of that day and felt compelled to create presentations and displays to those who lost their lives on that fateful day.PHOTO CONTRIBUTED BY MONA AND ROLAND GLADE - 9/11 tribute display attributed to Chuck Pore

Longtime friends Roland and Mona Glade helped Pore with the tributes in Lakeview. Roland was an EMT for 25 years, a firefighter and a retired fire chief. Mona was also an EMT and firefighter. They moved to Prineville in 2016. After Pore's passing, the display was gifted to Roland and Mona by Pore's wife. She felt that the couple would continue the tradition, and they have been true to that commitment.

"He started doing video presentations to the emergency service personnel in Lake County from the first time he ever came to Lake County," clarified Mona of the history of the memorial tributes.

This year, the couple have added a number of elements to the tribute that they moved from Lakeview.
