"This symbol honors the twenty-six men who lost their lives in the Plymouth Mine Disaster, May 9, 1992. The miner's lamp, central to the design, represents pride of their profession. Extending outward from the lamp are twenty-six rays of light", symbolic of eternal love and strength that emanates from their memories. The light also pays tribute to the kindness, courage and humanity that people extended to one another throughout this tragedy. Dominating over the darkness of the mine, the light that once gave guidance and hope to the miners, now continues to do the same for their families; "their light shall always shine"."
