WESTMONT – The village will hold a Patriot's Day ceremony at 7 p.m. Sept. 11 at the Westmont Police-Fire Facility at 500 N. Cass Ave.

Special guests will include States Attorney Bob Berlin and Illinois House Representative Patti Bellock, according to a Village of Westmont news release.

“This is the 12th consecutive year that we’ve held this event,” Westmont Police Chief Tom Mulhearn said in a news release. “And each year it’s a very memorable ceremony.”

“It’s important for people to remember the tragedy of that day and those who gave their lives trying to rescue others," Fire Chief David Weiss said. "We encourage the entire community to attend this moving event.”
