The city of Ludington was quite busy this Memorial Day weekend with most locals having an extra day off. The Memorial Day parade kicked off today at 1015 am from the courthouse and processed down Ludington ave. to Stearns Beach.
Vietnam Veteran Rick Plumber gave the key note speech; “These war dead whom we honor today, are not just are not just numbers on a list, or names on plaques or memorials. They are rare human beings for whom we have a sacred duty to keep forever alive in our hearts and minds. It is a holy debt that needs to be repaid to them faithfully every Memorial Day.”
A wreath laying ceremony and a 21 gun salute concluded the honor ceremony.
