Governor Coming Back To The Area

Posted by wlpo on November 9, 2011

Veteran’s Day is bringing the governor to Marseilles.

Pat Quinn is due in town Friday afternoon at 1:30.  He’s visiting the Illinois Fallen Soldiers Tree Memorial at Illini State Park.  The memorial has a tree planted for every Illinois soldier killed in Iraq and Afghanistan.

There will be Memorial Day events going on before the governor’s visit including a 21-gun salute, guest speakers and bench dedication near the city’s 175th anniversary mural.
