The Beyond the Call of Duty- End of Watch Ride will be held at the Cowan Civic Center. Lebanon Tourism Director Rebecca Rupard says the group will be escorting a 41 foot trailer ….
Local riders are encouraged to join the escort as they arrive and leave Lebanon. The End of Watch Ride will honor 338 fallen officers from across the country, and organizers say this event is to pay their respects to each of them, and to honor the fallen officer’s families as well. The End of Watch Ride will arrive in Lebanon at around 10 am and will leave about an hour later to head to Springfield and west to Kansas as they continue the 22-thousand mile ride.
