Subject: 2018 Memorial Day Parade
A parade to pay tribute to those who have served, are serving, and most importantly those who have made the ultimate sacrifice while in service to our country has been conducted by our American Legion Post every year since September 6, 1919.
On May 28, 2018 at 1 pm, our parade will once again begin. You are absolutely invited to participate in the 2018 Memorial Day Parade.
Along with our Post Officers and Honor Guard, all veterans are invited to walk in the Veterans Brigade at the head of the parade.
The Linglestown Area Civic Association will again hold the Linglestown Memorial Day Mile Run/Walk at 12 noon.
The registration, staging and route will be the same as last year. The American Legion Auxiliary will conduct registration at the rear of the old Linglestown Firehouse. The Sons of the American Legion will manage staging for the lead veteran elements and one band at the old firehouse with fire apparatus staging at the new firehouse. All other units please expect to stage at the Linglestown Church of God across the street.
Registration will start no later than 10 am. Please stage where you have in the past and only send one representative to the registration table.
We appreciate the participation of all who help celebrate those veterans who have gone before us.
