Cheshire Memorial Day Parade
May 28 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
In conjunction with the Cheshire Fire Department, CCAT is sponsoring the Annual Cheshire Memorial Day Parade and commemoration at Pine Bank Cemetery. Join us at the fire department as we walk as a community (or drive) to the cemetery along the flag lined Route 21 South.
NY State Senator Pam Helming will speak honoring our veterans. Flags will also be placed at the graves of Cheshire Veterans…there are almost 130! This tradition started many years ago when Charlie Forbes donated the first flags in recognition of the generations of veterans who continue to be a part of our community and history. Charlie was a veteran of the Korean War and provided the flags for many years until his health prevented him from continuing. CCAT volunteers place flags at the cemetery- if we miss anybody, please contact us.
Please plan to meet at 9:45 at the CVFD if you wish to “march” with us. Or watch the parade and join us at Pine Bank Cemetery for the short ceremony. Hope to see you there!
