SPECIAL EVENT - Vietnam Memorial | Community Spirit
Dear Resident/Occupant or Business:
We would like to inform you of a special event that will be taking place on Wednesday, July 25th along 54thStreet and Division Avenue. On this date, over a thousand motorcycles will be escorting a scale replica of the Vietnam Memorial to its display location in the City of Kentwood.
The City of Kentwood is facilitating a display of the American Veterans Traveling Tribute, (a scale replica of the Vietnam Memorial) at Veterans Park on 48th Street S.W. in the City of Kentwood. The Memorial will be escorted from a starting location south of the City of Wyoming, north on US 131, east on 54thstreet, and north on Division to a location just north of 48th Street. The procession may include thousands of motorcycles and is expected to be miles in length. This could result in eastbound 54th Street and northbound Division Avenue being shut down from approximately 10:15 am to 12:00 pm. additionally, no left turns will be permitted on either street for the same time frame. Emergency vehicles will still be able to access any blocked streets if needed.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Shannon Beatty at 616-530-7328 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Chief of Police
