Line the streets to show your support
The John Voshel Jr. Memorial Ride for fallen police officers, fire fighters and veterans is this Saturday, May 18. We the People Giving Back (a totally volunteer organization) is hosting the motorcycle run to honor those that protect us, and they are asking citizens and businesses to line the streets and make signs to show support.
It will start at 10:30 a.m. at the Grand Rapids Home for Veterans, 3000 Monroe Ave., Grand Rapids, and will exit US131 at M-57 (14 Mile) about 11 a.m. and travel east to Northland Drive, and then north on Northland to the Cedar Springs American Legion Glen Hill Post, at the corner of Main and Beech St. They will be at the Legion for about an hour, then travel north on Main St. to 18 Mile, and continue east on 18 Mile.
They will make two stops, one in Cedar Springs and one in Greenville, both at the American Legion Halls, where they will recognize some of our fallen heroes and Gold Star families. This event is designed to educate communities and bring awareness about the sacrifices made by all who wear a uniform. This ride will impact nine communities in Northern Michigan, in the hopes of honoring the fallen.
