Purple Heart Highway Invitation
Melissa Cox forwards-
Senate Minority Leader Bruce Tarr, State Representative Ann-Margaret Ferrante and the Gloucester Veteran Services Office cordially invite you to a dedication ceremony on Saturday, November 17th of the Cape Ann portion of Rt.128 that has legislatively been designated a Purple Heart Highway. Saturday’s dedication will begin at 11:00AM and will be held at Gloucester City Hall, followed by a small reception at the Gloucester House Restaurant at 12:30PM. Invited guests include local officials, Purple Heart recipients and other members of the veterans’ community. During the ceremony the new signs designating the highway will be unveiled.
When: Saturday, November 17th
Time: 11:00AM Where: Gloucester City Hall
Earlier this year, Senator Tarr filed legislation designating the portion of Rt.128 as a Purple Heart Highway as a result of a home rule petition passed by the Gloucester City Council and approved by Mayor Carolyn Kirk. The legislation, which was co-sponsored by Representative Ferrante, was signed into law by Governor Patrick on August 16th.
The Cape Ann section of Rt.128, which begins at Grant Circle and extends to East Main Street, now joins with transportation elements in 45 states across the country that collectively comprise the National Purple Heart Trail System. The name of the system stems from the Purple Heart Medal that honors members of the United States military who were wounded or killed in service to the nation.
Designating the Cape Ann portion of Rt.128 further honors these veterans for the sacrifices they have made on behalf of this great nation.
Saturday’s event is open to the public, and you may share this information with others, and we hope to see you there!
