Memorial Day Observances

Eagle Memory

*PIERMONT MEMORIAL DAY PARADE AND SERVICES POSTPONED*

Our special Memorial Day Parade and Memorial Garden Program scheduled for Monday, May 25, 2020 has been postponed to Memorial Day, May 31, 2021. Our program for this year was to include World War 2 Tank crew member Ken Uline, who was selected as our Grand Marshal. Also, columnist, author, and Viet Nam Veteran Gary Moore as our Guest Speaker, plus that popular band, the Summertime Marching Band of Monroe, a band that actually marches and plays a wonderful suite of patriotic music. Also, the Piermont Village School band and chorus, who were so magnificent last year.

So, due to the bad coronavirus 19 in our midst, we have moved the entire card of Memorial Day events to next year’s Memorial Day in order to appropriately honor our veterans and their sacrifices with our program of a parade, Memorial Garden services, BBQ Lunch, Book Sale and other events.

Piermont veterans will still be honoring our service dead by visiting Piermont cemeteries and placing wreaths each location. Our deceased brothers and sisters in uniform will not be forgotten.
