Perrysburg cannon re-dedication ceremony set for Saturday
PERRYSBURG — The City of Perrysburg Department of Public Service will hold a re-dedication ceremony for the newly refurbished cannons on Saturday at 11 a.m. at Riverside Park, 245 W. Front St.
The cannons are replicas of cannons that were on the USS Constitution. The city also built wooden wheel carriages to hold the cannons. The cannons did not have carriages on them when they came to Perrysburg. However, Perrysburg was able to obtain from the USS Constitution Museum in Boston the 1906 plans in order to create them.
The committee in charge of this project includes Richard Baranowski, Lloyd Swanson, Public Service Employee Craig Hufford, and Public Service Director Rob Ross, all of who will be in attendance. Additionally Mayor Mackin, State Representative Haraz Ghanbari, R-Perrysburg, and members of the American Legion will attend.
