Remus Area Historical Society (RAHS) plans to recognize Vietnam veterans, from Remus and the surrounding areas, that served in Vietnam and their families on Saturday, November 10, 1-4 p.m. at the Wheatland Township Hall in Remus. There is no cost to attend. The event, in cooperation with the Vietnam War 50th Commemoration, includes a presentation by Michigan author and Vietnam veteran Tim Keenan sharing his personal healing journey following his experience as well as tributes, refreshments, a roundtable and displays. If you are a Remus area Vietnam Veteran, or have a loved one that you would like recognized, please send your contact info and Vietnam veteran name, service years, photos, maps, clippings, letters home, memorabilia, etc. by mail to:

The project is funded in part by a grant from Mecosta County Community Foundation, an affiliate of Fremont Area Community Foundation, and gifts of support by area veteran groups and families. RAHS is still welcoming donations and small donated items such as business discount coupons for event gift bags. A special Vietnam Veteran display will be created at the Remus Museum.
