The Memorial will be in attendance throughout the event. Starting on Saturday morning, June 8th at 8 a.m., the Legion Riders, Freedom Riders, Eagles and Port Huron Masons along with the St. Clair County Sheriff's Department, Marysville Police Department, Port Huron Police Department and Port Huron Fire Department will escort the Memorial from the Marysville Meijer's Parking lot on Gratiot Blvd north (on Gratiot) to Military. From there they will proceed straight up Military to the Art on the River event site at Quay and Huron in Downtown Port Huron. For those that wish to observe this procession, you should be somewhere on the route by 8 a.m. as we can't promise how soon they will leave Marysville and how fast they will be traveling (this will depend on traffic).
Once they arrive in Port Huron, they will set up and a ceremony welcoming the Memorial to Port Huron and Art on the River will begin at 9:30 a.m. There will be several dignitaries in attendance. A bagpipe will play, The Allied Veterans Color Guard will post the colors and the Allied Veterans Honor Guard will give a gun salute and play taps. The New Horizons Orchestra will be on hand to play the National Anthem and some great music after the ceremony is over with at 10 a.m.
Please plan to attend this moving tribute to our men and women who make the ultimate sacrifice for our country! And thank you to all the Veterans groups who contributed to bring this Memorial to Port Huron and Art on the River.
