PLYMOUTH, Mich. -- Right after the Plymouth, Michigan, Memorial Day Parade (8:30 A.M.), a short ceremony will be held at the Veterans Memorial Park across the street from the Plymouth Historical Museum. Bob Zaetta, the perpetual emcee will direct the short remarks starting a little after 9:00 A.M. One of the groups highlighted and remembered will be the Union 24th of Michigan. A Civil War monument, first erected in Plymouth in 1917, was relocated from Plymouth's Riverside Cemetery, to the Southwest corner of the new park. The Plymouth Community sent significant numbers of participants to the war.

If we demonstrate the remembrance these special veterans and GAR members deserve, they will truly never be forgotten. I encourage……… volunteer and be active, give our veteran Posts vigilant support. Please remember the debt we owe to these men and women who have served. American Legion Plymouth Post No. 391 and VVA Post No. 528 both help to sponsor the parade.

NORTHVILLE -- The Northville Parade starts at 10:00 A.M. downtown. Northville VFW Post #4012 is the presenting sponsor.

CANTON -- The Beck-Ridge Chorale will perform its patriotic Because of the Brave set Monday at the Village Theater at Cherry Hill at 1 and 3 p.m. Tickets are $8 and $10.

DEARBORN -- One of the Henry Ford’s Greenfield Village signature events is the remembrance weekend of the Civil War. Throughout the Memorial Day weekend veterans will be honored and over 450 re-enactors will create an authentic Civil War encampment. Artillery, cavalry, parades and 19-th century music will fill the air. http://www.hfmgv.org/events/civilWarRemembrance.aspx & http://www.hfmgv.org/events/pdf/cwrProgram2012.pdf [PDF]
