Town of Hamden will present its 76th annual Memorial Day Parade on
May 28, 2012, stepping off at 10:00 a.m. at Hamden High School and
continuing north along Dixwell Avenue to the Memorial Town Hall. The
Parade will be reviewed on Dixwell Avenue near Evergreen Avenue.
Following the parade there will be a wreath ceremony at the Veterans
Memorial in front of Hamden Middle School. After the invocation,
Mayor Jackson and the Parade Marshal will address those in
attendance, and wreaths will be placed at the Memorial.
The Town of Hamden
would be honored if current members of our Armed Forces would join
us. If you would like to march, please call the Mayor’s Office at
287-7100. The parade will serve as a tribute to the deeds of our
Veterans and a source of pride to our citizens.
We are always in need of convertibles to drive some of our Veterans.
Many bands and
local organizations are planning to participate. If your group is
interested in marching with us, please contact Gerry Tobin in the
Mayor’s Office at (203) 287-7100.
