Memorial Day Parade - May 27th


Marching in the Danbury Memorial Day Parade

Club and Ladies Auxiliary Members, 
and Extended Members of the Middle Eastern Community are welcome to participate
The 8th Annual Memorial Day Parade will take place on Monday, May 27, 2019 in downtown Danbury. Formerly known as Decoration Day, Memorial Day held on the last Monday in May, is a day of remembering the men and women that died while serving in the USA Armed Forces. We encourage all members, families and friends to come and proudly represent the club and our ethnic community and respectfully honor those that have given their life for our country.

We will assemble at the Club around 8:00 am to enjoy some light breakfast fare and then proceed over to the parade route that begins on Kennedy Avenue. The parade ends at Rogers Park. It is a great time and a fun way to get some exercise walking; or riding in one of cars.

A sign up sheet will be available at the Club or you may call Mike or John. May God Bless America and let’s have a great turn out for the parade!
