What started in 2011 as a mission to restore the true meaning of Memorial Day has grown to a year-long event. Five different groups are currently walking across the country for Memorial Day. Some Mount Pleasant residents joined in to help carry the load.
They’ll deliver clothing and sewing items and perform church services at each location, and continue down the river by canoe to visit remote villages where they’ll begin water sampling and mapping in an effort to bring desperately needed clean drinking water to the villages.
