With the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks fast approaching, City of Lake Charles officials announced Thursday that a commemoration ceremony is planned to honor those who fell in the attacks.

The event will be held from 6-7 p.m. on Sept. 11 at the city’s 9/11 memorial on Bord Du Lac Drive. In the event of inclement weather, the program will move to the Civic Center Buccaneer Room. For more information, call (337) 491-1201 or visit www.cityoflakecharles.com.

In the coming weeks, we’ll be taking a look back at the tragedy that changed the face of America and killed innocent people at the World Trade Center, at the U.S. Pentagon and on Flight 93 over Pennsylvania. Do you remember where you were when you heard about the 9/11 attacks?
