Grand Haven marks Memorial Day

Memorial Day 2011 was marked in Grand Haven on Monday morning with a short but sun-filled parade on a newly paved Washington Avenue. George Bennett, a local veteran, served as the parade's grand marshal. A ceremony was held at Waterfront Stadium following the parade. Joe Schulte, a Grand Haven public safety officer and member of the National Guard who most recently served in Iraq, was the keynote speaker.
