2020 Memorial Day Parade Planning Underway

From Ken McClellan.
The Middletown Council  of Veterans is organizing the  2020 Middletown Memorial Day Parade!

I want to thank past participants, and hope that you will join us again this year, in our tribute to military veterans and their families.

We are hoping that the CoVid-19 outbreak will have settled by the end of May and we can all get together on Main Street.  If health restrictions have eased, the parade will be held on May 25.

This year, our theme is honoring African-American Veterans.

Following the parade, there will be a short memorial ceremony on Union Green (South Green) during which we will award trophies for outstanding march units.

Groups that wish to participate in the parade, please contact, or by USPS to:

Council of Veterans of Middletown
ATTN: Memorial Day Parade
58 Bernie O’Rourke Drive
Middletown, CT 06457

You are also invited to attend the Memorial Service at the State Veterans Cemetery on Bow Lane at 2 PM, hosted by the 7th District of the American Legion.

I believe the parade is cancelled now. Honor in silence.
