Center Moriches VFW readies for Memorial Day


The Moriches annual Memorial Day parade will take place on Main Street for a solemn remembrance. Veterans are asked to come and march, joining other organizations honoring all brothers and sisters who proudly served and have passed.

The parade will take place on May 30 at 9 a.m., with lineup at 8 a.m., starting at Lake Avenue and Main Street. The parade will proceed east along Main to Mt. Pleasant Cemetery. A ceremony will then be held.

“Memorial Day is a special day,” said Center Moriches VFW Post 414 commander Bobby Galbraith. “It’s a day to remember and honor all those who served and have now passed away. We honor them with this special ceremony so they’ll never, ever be forgotten.”
