Flags, ribbons to line motorcade

Thursday, June 9, 2016 7:04 PM

American flags and blue and yellow ribbons are planned to line the motorcade route in honor of Jeff Kuss.

A group will gather from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday at the bottom of Greenmount Cemetery Hill to help decorate the motorcade route with blue and yellow ribbons through downtown to the cemetery gate.

Parking may be limited at Greenmount Hill, so attendees are asked to carpool and park near the Ninth Street bridge.

Those planning on attending Saturday's motorcade procession can also pick up free American flags at the Chamber of Commerce and Durango Olive Oil Company.

There are 100 American flags available at each location. There are also blue and yellow ribbons to decorate the motorcade route, and a limited number of memorial wrist bands and pins available at the Chamber of Commerce.

The motorcade will start at 11 a.m. on 32nd Street and drive along Main Avenue south to College Drive. It will run west on College to Camino del Rio, where it will turn right and proceed to the Ninth Street bridge, where it will turn left and go to Greenmount Cemetery. Residents are encouraged to line the motorcade route.

The Chamber of Commerce is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Santa Rita Park.

The Olive Oil Co., 640 Main Avenue, is open from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
