Military Holidays are a big deal in Jonesville Michigan. Veterans Day 2011 marked the rededication of the G.A.R. (Grand Army of the Republic) Memorial in Carl Fast Park. Over 600 people were in attendance from this village of 2,400.  The G.A.R. Statue was erected in 1912 and honored soldiers from the American Civil War. The Jonesville American Legion funded a project to reposition the statue on a new stone base and flank it with a new American Flag display. The rededication was attended by local students, village residents, and guests of the Munro House B&B. The Munro House gave away all its rooms for free to Veterans and current Active Duty Military personnel as a “thank you” for their service. The international B&Bs for Vets program was very well-received at this Michigan B&B.
