Memorial Day Parade, Ceremony

By on May 25, 2014

MyVeronaNJ-Memorial-Day-SlideVerona’s Memorial Day parade on Monday, May 26, will start, as usual, at 10 a.m. at Everett Field and march towards the center of town. If you or your kids are among the marchers, you need to be at Everett at 9:30 a.m. The southern end of Elmwood Road and the grassy area at Everett will be closed to traffic and parking, so plan on an alternative.

The ceremony to remember Veronans who died in service of their country will be held at the end of the parade at the Verona Civic Center. If you’re just attending that, it’s best to arrive by 10:30 a.m. Walk, or park in the municipal lot behind Terry’s Drugs and Avenue Bistro.

All town offices are closed on Monday.

    This is wonderful- I understand some little girl carried my brother Arthur J. Anderson’s sign in the parade. Thanks to Robert Caruso I heard about it or I would not have know otherwise. It seemed to me to be a wonderful gesture to honor these veterans.I just received the replica sign and will carry it in our Veterans Day Parade. I am The Grand Marshall this year. I just wish I had copies of the newspapers of the parade and the signs. We lived at 31 Cumberland Ave in Verona when my brother and I joined the Navy-he is 1942 and I in 1943. Thank you Verona for that wonderful tribute. Helen Anderson Rickard Glass former AMM3/C U S Navy WW2 from Tucson, AZ
