Vietnam Wall arrives in Catskill tomorrow, Main St. closed for procession

From Catskill Police:

When the Vietnam Wall makes it's way through the Village of Catskill Wednesday, Main St will be closed completely in both directions from the Jefferson heights bridge to the point.

Every intersection will be blocked. This will be happening somewhere between 1030 and 1130. Once it begins it will be closed for approximately 1 hour so the wall and escort can move freely through the village to its destination at the point.

Stop and show your support or avoid the area completely. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
