MILFORD — The People’s Convoy made its way through Milford just after 3:30 p.m. Friday, May 13, en route to Polk Auction at US 6 and SR 15, where a rally will be held Saturday, starting at 11 a.m.
You could hear the convoy nearing Milford about one mile south of town, as motorists honked their horns. When the convoy rounded the curves south of town, American flags waved in the air off the vehicles. Every driver in the convoy honked the horn and/or waved as they passed other motorists or those standing along the roadside.
The group made a stop near Plymouth on US 30, west of US 31, before continuing their journey into Kosciusko County and up into Elkhart County.
The rally will provide an opportunity to speak to those in the convoy, who are not all driving semi-tractor/trailers; hear speakers; listen to some music; and enjoy food. Donations of various supplies, such as frozen meats, food, eggs, potatoes, vegetables, drinks and baby wipes and nonperishable food items, and money will be taken during the event.
The current convoy began in California and is expected to arrive in Washington, D.C., next week. Reasons for protesting now encompass continued opposition to mandates and opposition to historically high gas prices.
