Mayor Rey Martinez, of Loganville, along with Stan Mauldin of the Legion Riders of the American Legion Post 233 will be doing a short presentation and laying of a wreath at the monument in front of old city hall in at 8 a.m. on Monday, May 25, 2020, in honor of Memorial Day. This will honor the men and women who have given the ultimate sacrifice. Usually, on Memorial Day between 600 to 1000 motorcyclist ride from the American Legion Post 233 to Madison for a Memorial Day Ceremony before returning to Loganville. However, due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, this will not take place this year.

“We’re saddened that the annual Ride for America event has been canceled due to COVID-19. Loganville looks forward to hundreds of motorcycles take their journey from Post 233 to Madison in support of charities every year. We will never forget the fallen and this pandemic will not stop our community from honoring their sacrifices,” Martinez said.

The old Loganville city hall is located at 4385 Pecan Street. In previous years, the Veterans Day Celebrations have taken place at this location.
