Memorial Day parade participants asked to update contact information

For organizations participating or wishing to participate in the 2019 Darien Memorial Day Parade, the Darien Monuments and Ceremonies Commission requires you to update your contact information. Specifically, the commission needs the organization name, current contact name of the person who will handle communications, this person’s email, mailing address and phone number.

Participants are asked to send this information to 06820mayparade@gmail.com by April 8. Commission Vice Chairman Terry Gaffney has volunteered to run this year’s Parade.

The Commission is looking forward to another successful Parade, and Memorial Day Ceremony. Chairman David Polett will once again serve as MC for the event immediately after the parade at the monument in Spring Grove Veterans Cemetery. Serving as 2019 Memorial Day Parade Grand Marshal will be Darien resident, Pat Parlette; while Darien High School teacher and author Matt Pavia will be the speaker.

This year’s parade will be held on Monday, May 27, stepping off 10 a.m. with the annual United States Air Force flyover along the Post Road (weather permitting) occurring at approximately 10:30 a.m.

The commission says updating contact information will ensure that your organization is included in all mailings and notifications.
