At a recent meeting held at Cedarhurst Village Hall, preparations were under way for the 2014 Memorial Day Parade. Mayor Andrew Parise stated, “Last year’s parade was a terrific success. Between the huge number of parade participants and attendees, it was a true inspiration to us all. To see so many people, young and old, from every walk of life, come together to show support for our veterans was truly monumental.”
The committee, which includes co-chairmen Mayor Parise and 2nd Deputy Chief David S. Campbell, is excited about this year’s Memorial Day Parade. Participating this year are local fire departments of the Five Towns, the Lawrence High School band and color guard, and various local organizations.
The parade will step off at 11:30 a.m. at the Lawrence-Cedarhurst firehouse, corner of Central Avenue and Washington Avenue, and continue towards Cedarhurst Memorial Plaza in the Andrew J. Parise Park, where a service will be held to remember our fallen comrades and honor all the men and women who serve or have served this great country.
So, before heading to the beach or a barbecue, please come and join the village in honoring our veterans, living and deceased, in an event that will prove to be a meaningful and enjoyable experience.
Refreshments will be served following the conclusion of the service.
If you are a veteran, or know of a veteran or any organization in the Lawrence-Cedarhurst area that would like to take part in this memorable event, please contact Mayor Andrew J. Parise or JoMarie Capone at the Village of Cedarhurst, 516-295-5770. v
