Walker’s Remembrance Car Cruise Won’t Happen This Year
Another summer event is off for 2020.The City of Walker Police Department has announced their Annual Remembrance Car Cruise is canceled this year due to COVID-19.
They shared the news on Facebook saying,
COVID 19 makes planning large scale events difficult, and we obviously don’t want our events to create the opportunity for a COVID 'hot spot' to pop up.
Usually taking place in mid-August, the cruise runs along Remembrance Rd., starting near Sobie Meats and ending near the police department. Classic cars are on display, plus there's food, games, and raffles.
The event is a fundraiser for "Thin Blue Line Michigan", a nonprofit that provides assistance in the areas of financial, legal, benefit recovery, counseling, funeral stipends, college stipends, medical costs, medical equipment and other areas of hardship to the families of injured, ill, disabled or deceased members of Public Safety.
Walker PD says they are looking forward to bringing the event back, bigger and better, in 2021.
