Local Boy Scouts attend 9/11 Remembrance Salute

Cub Scouts from Pack 3285 at Crestwood Elementary School took part in the 9/11 Remembrance Salute at Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum in downtown Grand Rapids. This year over 3,500 Scouts took part in the salute.

Scouts in salute are (l–r) Zebb VanderKooy, Liam Knisley, Jason Williams and Evan Coberly.

“We had a wonderful turnout this year, in spite of the rainy weather,” according to Ryan Kreisch, Eagle Spirit District Executive. “The number of participants continues to increase every year.”

Each year since 2002, the salute is held to honor those who lost their lives and those who gave so much love and help following the terrorism attack on September 11, 2001. The sun-up-to-sun-down salute conducted by Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, law enforcement, area fire services, EMS, active military, veterans and citizens is the only memorial held in the nation for the entire day.
