On the 12th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, the Naperville Exchange Club is sponsoring the annual Sept. 11 remembrance event.
This year’s event will take place at 6 p.m. on Sept. 11 at the Cmdr. Dan Shanower Memorial, located behind the Municipal Center along the Riverwalk, 400 S. Eagle St.
In case of rain, the event will take place inside Council Chambers at the Municipal Center.
The memorial in Naperville is named for Navy Cmdr. Dan Shanower, a Naperville native who was working at the Pentagon that day when terrorists flew a commercial airplane into the building, killing him and 183 others.
Shanower was raised in Naperville and graduated from Naperville Central High School in 1979.
