Memorial Mission
Freedom Horse Memorial Replacement
All Branches

East Rochester, NY - 11/13/2020
Mission applies to the following Region(s): Region 1, Region 2
About the Mission:

The Rochester Police department will be escorting "Freedom the 9/11 Horse" back to interstate 490. This horse was damaged during the riots. At the request of the artists, they would like a flag line to honor the horse and his reminder of the life’s lost during 9/11.

There is no parking on Washington or Fairport Rd, so we will need to park in Sherwood Manor or Lochnavar or on Roosevelt Rd. There will be two fire trucks with the American flag at the main intersection of Fairport Rd and Washington. No one but the police officers can escort the horse, so the artist feel this is the best way to honor the memories he represents.
