Memorial Day 1997

Take time to reflect on their valor and sacrifice


For the second year, the Grosse Pointe Woods Historical Commission regrets to announce that the annual Memorial Day Observance normally held at the Veterans' Memorial Parkway Circle of Honor has been cancelled due to concerns for the spread of COVID-19.

However, they invite you to revisit the 1997 ceremony featuring a keynote address by the city's late Mayor Robert E. Novitke, reflecting on his experiences as a member of the U.S. Marine Corps serving in Vietnam.
