Parkville’s Hope and Peace Foundation commemorates Memorial Day around town

PARKVILLE, MD—This was a Memorial Day like no other, but that didn’t stop Parkville’s Hope and Peace Foundation from remembering the fallen – with social distancing measures in place.

The foundation, along with Maryland’s Rolling 9/11 Memorial made stops at Holly Hills Memorial Gardens in Middle River, Dulaney Valley Memorial Gardens in Towson, the World War I Memorial in Towson, McAvoy’s in Parkville, the Korean War Memorial on Boston Street, the Vietnam War Memorial on Hanover Street, and Navy Seal Patrick Feeks’ memorial in Edgewater.

Over 50 motorcycle riders and members of the Charm City Punishers escorted the caravan and several Gold Star Families were in attendance.

“What an awesome day to remember and honor our fallen this Memorial Day,” said Hope and Peace Foundation founder Chuck Ritz. “Thank you to the over 50 riders who escorted Maryland’s 9/11 Rolling Memorial…Thank you to all who came out to join us in keeping the promise to never forget that freedom is not free.”
