On Jan. 20, 1989, West St. Paul’s Robert Pavliak rode in the inaugural parade for President George H.W. Bush.
Pavliak, then 64, served as a U.S. marshal and rode on an authentic replica of a mid-19th-century prison wagon to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the founding of the U.S. Marshals service.
Other Inaugural Connections:
- In 1997, a group of 100 students from Grass Junior High School (now Heritage E-STEM Magnet School) visited Washington, D.C., for a tour of the capitol and attended President Bill Clinton’s inaugural parade (albeit in seats that were reportedly a quarter of a mile from the parade route).
