On March 27, Orange Live announced that the Memorial Day Parade Committee had begun its planning meetings for the 2013 Orange Memorial Day Ceremonies and Parade, which will take place on Sunday, May 26.
Here is the latest information from that group of dedicated volunteers:
Kevin Gilbert once again will serve as Parade Organizer. Parade ceremonies will commence promptly at 10:30 a.m. at the High Plains Community Center Field.
The parade will step off immediately following the ceremony down Orange Center Road past the reviewing stand with services following at the Orange Center Cemetery.
The Parade Committee encourages those with antique cars, horses and carriages and any groups wishing to participate to contact Karen Goldberg at the Orange Town Hall at 203-891-4738 or Kevin Gilbert at 203-795-2417 or 203-795-4647.
Applications for participation in the parade are available in the Orange Town Hall – First Selectman’s Office or on the town’s website at www.orange-ct.gov. The Committee anticipates many marching bands and floats. An Air National Guard military flyover has not yet been determined.
The Committee invites the public to join in honoring our nation’s veterans.
IN THE EVENT OF RAIN, EXERCISES WILL BE HELD IN THE HIGH PLAINS COMMUNITY CENTER AUDITORIUM
