Old Glory Relay for veterans goes through Bay Village
The fifth annual Old Glory Relay to make us aware of veterans and veteran issues headed through Bay Village on Sept. 30. The relay started in Boston, Massachusetts, on Sept. 11, and is headed to San Diego, California by Veterans Day. This leg of the relay started at the Soldiers and Sailors Monument on Public Square and the flags will be handed off to the next team in Toledo.
Sixty-two teams, made up of members from local chapters of the national Team RWB, will carry the flag 4,300 miles across 24 states. Team RWB's mission is to connect veterans to their communities through physical and social interaction. Donations to the non-profit organization can be made at teamrwb.org.
