The Patriot Guard Riders have been invited to stand in honor at the Dedication Ceremony for the Colorado Fallen Heroes Memorial, at Lincoln Veterans Memorial Park (across the street from the State Capitol's West Entrance) on Saturday, November 6, 2021.
The Ceremony will begin at 10:00AM, but, the Gold Star Families are scheduled to arrive by 9:00AM, therefore, we have been asked to have our Flag Line in place by 8:45AM.
This Dedication Ceremony was originally scheduled for May, 2020, but, civil unrest, damage to this new Memorial and the Coronavirus were the reasons for the seventeen month delay.
8:15AM - Stage at Lincoln Veterans Memorial Park
8:30AM - Mission Briefing
8:45AM - Form Flag Line at the Colorado Fallen Heroes Memorial
Dave "EZ" McCabe will serve as Ride Captain.
I will be honored to attend and will bring Flags.
The following google map link displays the area where the Dedication Ceremony will be taking place, on Saturday, November 6th. The parking arrangement will serve two purposes. One, we will be very close to the event location and two, our vehicles will serve as traffic control buffers. We, with the blessing of the Denver Police Department and the Colorado State Patrol will be parking in the street, on Broadway, between Colfax Avenue and 14th Avenue. The Western most lane, which is the Bus Lane, will be the only lane open during the Ceremony. We will park our vehicles in the lane directly to the east of the Bus Lane. This one block of Broadway is where seating will be set up for the Ceremony attendees.
