Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial will be reopened with a ribbon-cutting ceremony Saturday at 10 a.m.
PUT-IN-BAY — Local dignitaries will celebrate the reopening of Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial this weekend.
The 352-foot tall structure on South Bass Island was off limits to the public last summer as workers cleaned and repointed the granite column, and replaced broken tile inside the memorial.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony is set for 10 a.m. Saturday. U.S. Rep. Marcy Kaptur (D., Toledo), state Rep. Steve Arndt (R., Port Clinton), and state Sen. Randy Gardner (R., Bowling Green) will be in attendance.
The memorial honors those who died in the Battle of Lake Erie during the War of 1812.
