AMERICAN TRIBUTE RIDE HAS A FINALIZED ROUTE

The 2017 American Tribute Ride (ATR) committee has got confirmation for all of our stops for this year’s ride. As this year’s ride will start at the Wisconsin State Firefighters Memorial Park in Wisconsin Rapids.

We will be traveling along the Wisconsin River for some time and then going east to Coloma for a brief stop. From Coloma we travel south to Endeavor. As you may recall Endeavor suffered in Line of Duty Death in 2016. This will be our opportunity to pay our respects to Firefighter Larry Millard.

When we leave Endeavor we will travel the back roads to Fox Lake. The Fox Lake Fire Department hosts their annual Car Show on our date as well. We will be able to see some of the great cars on display. We will end up in Theresa Firemen’s Park for our memorial service, auction and great meal.

As always the ride will honor the brave men and women who serve their communities, our state and nation. Special recognition will be given to those who made the ultimate sacrifice as part of a touching closing ceremony in Theresa. So far this year the list includes the following:

MILITARY

August 23    Army Staff Sgt. Matthew Thompson    Brookfield (in Afghanistan)
