However, in the Ann Arbor Area there are many events planned where you can honor those who have died in the service of our country.
One of the events my family and I have celebrated for many years in in Saline, the Memorial Day Parade. The parade begins at 10:00 AM in front of the fire station and moves to the Oakwood Cemetery for a ceremony and wreath placing.
The Dexter Parade also begins and 10:00 AM and travels to the Gazebo at Monument Park.
In Chelsea the parade also begins at 10:00.
In Ann Arbor the Glazier Home Owners Association sponsors a parade at 10:00 AM, where kids are invited to decorate their bikes and participate. Ypsilanti’s parade begins at 9:00 AM and goes down Huron Street.
Honoring the fallen is a great way to spend an hour or so within your local communities.There are many War Memorial Monuments throughout Washtenaw County.
How many have you seen?
Enjoy you weekend but take a few minutes to reflect on our fallen men and woman.
