City of Three Rivers to host annual Memorial Day parade Monday
Watershed Voice will not publish on Monday, May 31 in observance of Memorial Day.
Memorial Day honors the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. Originally known as Decoration Day, it started following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971.
The City of Three Rivers will hold a Memorial Day parade this year, after last year’s event was cancelled due to COVID-19. Those participating in the parade will line up starting at 9:45 a.m. at Kelsey and North Main Streets, and will step off at 10:15 a.m. Monday morning traveling through downtown Three Rivers before turning left on West Michigan Avenue, and ending with a service at Riverside Cemetery.
Alek Haak-Frost is executive editor of Watershed Voice.
