24-hour tribute to war dead to be held May 30

“On Memorial Day, we reflect on the service and sacrifice of those who have died to preserve our freedom,” said Board of Clermont County Commissioners President Bob Proud.

On this Memorial Day weekend, a solemn ceremony will be held at the Union Township Veterans Memorial Park, paying tribute to those who paid the ultimate price for our freedom.

On Sunday, May 30, at 2 p.m., Commissioner Proud, State Representative and Colonel Danny Bubp, and Union Township trustee Bob McGee will be part of a program beginning a 24-hour vigil at the park to set up crosses and flags, while reading the names of over 500 war dead from the Cincinnati area.
