Memorial Day Parade details

21 May


It looks like the weather is going to start to become actually spring-like for a change, so we may luck out yet again for this year’s Memorial Day Parade on Monday morning.

This is always a very nice parade, and the ceremony that follows it at Webster Rural Cemetery is always moving. I highly recommend bringing your children to see both the parade and the ceremony, so they might begin to understand the huge debt we owe our servicemen and women.

Here are the details of Webster’s Memorial Day parade and ceremony, held Monday May 27, pulled from the Cottreall-Warner American Legion Post website:

  • 9:30 a.m.:  All groups participating in the parade will assemble at Spry Middle School on Sanford Street. All active duty and ex-service men and women are invited to take part in the parade.
  • 10:00 a.m.:  parade moves out from Spry, down South Avenue, turning west on Main Street and proceeding to Webster Rural Cemetery.

(I have seen two different times for this event, one saying the parade begins at 9:30, not 10. So get a seat early in case that’s what’s happening!)

The parade should completely arrive at the cemetery about 45 to 50 minutes after it begins at Spry. Following the service, refreshments will be served at the Elks Club on Jackson Road and all are invited to participate.

    I’ll be going for numerous reasons but one is to see my “peeps” who are marching!

    Unfortunate that the parade was over before 10 when you posted it wasn’t starting until 10. The only thing my kids asked for was to go to a parade this weekend to wave their flags.

      I know! I got to it late myself. Sorry about that. I pulled my information from the website of VFW post, one of the organizers. I was a bit leery of it since it was later than usual, but it was hard to find any info about it. Next year I’ll remember not to trust it.
