IMPERIAL — While the Sept. 11 attacks occurred 18 years ago approximately 2,600 miles away, residents of the Imperial Valley, indeed, have never forgotten.

More than 343 participants were at Imperial Valley Fairgrounds for the annual Imperial Valley 9/11 Memorial Event and Stair Climb on Saturday night. It was a turnout that has only been idealized, but never reached, since the event started six years ago, event organizer Tiffinie Macias said.
