(Beaver Dam) Beaver Dam Mayor Becky Glewen says she hopes to see support for the Patriot Tour continue to grow in the community. Organizers with Nation of Patriots recently announced that Beaver Dam will be the official home for the send-off and return of the tour that raises money for veterans and their families. For the last nine-years, the previous launch site took place in Madison. Glewen says this is an exciting opportunity and wishes to see the non-profit promoted locally. The Dodge County Fairgrounds had served as the return site for the Patriot Tour in years past. During a recent appearance on WBEV’s Community Comment, Glewen told us the return site has been relocated to Swan City Park which will allow more residents to be connected to what the Nation of Patriots do every year. The 110-day, 14,000-mile journey that sees multiple motorcycle riders carry one American flag, city-to-city, through all 48 continental states. The tour will launch from downtown Beaver Dam on Saturday, May 19 at 11am and return to Beaver Dam on Saturday, September 8.
