We have been informed that the Sherriff’s department has selected a meeting place for folks so they can provide an escort to the site if they wish (as it can be a bit hard to find). They are going to be leaving from the parking lot next to 1804 N. Riley HWY, Shelbyville, IN 46176 at 10:30 AM on 9/9. They will also be providing an escort back to the same location.
The service will include a prayer or short meditation from representatives of the Catholic Church, 1st Christian Church, and Jewish Synagogue that participated in the original memorial service. We will also be reading the names of each of the victims and share in a moment of silence. This will be followed by the unveiling of the memorial stone.
After the service, and after families have lunch on their own, they are welcome to gather at the local library where a room as been reserved from 1:30 to 3:30 so they may have time together privately.
Thanks for Sarah Newkirk with the Grove Museum and Shelby County Historical Society for providing this update!
