Committee says “Let us never forget the price our veterans paid to preserve our freedom. The Memorial Day Parade affords us the opportunity to reflect on the true meaning of the holiday: to honor those who have died for our country and ensure they’ll never be forgotten. All are encouraged to come out and show support along the parade route and at the various Memorial Services for the dedication and service given by our Veterans, both young and old.”
