KENNEWICK, Wash. -- The 12 year anniversary of the September 11th attacks is Wednesday, and the City of Kennewick and the Fraternal Order of Police are planning a full day of events at the Southridge Sports Complex.
There will be a changing of the guard at the 9-11 Memorial every half hour starting at 6:30 am.
A 5K run starts at 8:30am, followed by Kamiakin High School students serving breakfast.
Emergency vehicles go on display at 4:00pm and a ceremony with key note speaker retired Navy Captain John Butterfield begins at 6:45pm.
"The theme really is never forget and I feel so strongly about remembering 9-11 the sacrifices many people made then and continue to make today," Butterfield told NBC Right Now.
The City of Kennewick is one of only a few in the country that has a piece of the World Trade Center on display.
