The John Voshel Jr. Memorial Ride for fallen police officers, fire fighters and veterans made a stop in Cedar Springs Saturday, May 18.

The ride, organized by “We the People Giving Back,” started at the Grand Rapids Home for the Veterans, then made its way to Cedar Springs and stopped at the American Legion Hall for a presentation, before traveling on to Greenville.

“We honored three Gold star families, three Purple Heart vets, eight fallen officers, four patriots, and did a random act of kindness drive by in Lakeview for cystic fibrosis,” said Pam Bradfield, a member of the group. “We were also able to surprise a Purple Heart vet with a new riding mower.”

She said there were about 200-250 bikes that took part in the ride.
