CLARK, NJ - Memorial Day is Monday, May 25 and plans for the annual parade in Clark are underway.  2015 marks the 56th anniversary of the township's parade. 2015 also marks the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II.

"We are paying homage to all those who have paid the ultimate price to keep our country free," said parade organizer Councilman Al Barr.

The parade will step off from Nassau Street at 9:30 a.m. and proceed on Westfield Avenue toward the Arthur L. Johnson High School.  Marchers will pass in review in front of the school, then assemble on the front lawn for a brief ceremony conducted by the American Legion.

Barr said that invitations to march have been sent to groups that have marched in the past. He is requesting prompt RSVPs so he can properly prepare the parade lineup. Groups that have not marched before but that would like to participate can contact Barr at albar@comcast.net.

Marchers include the ALJ Marching Band, local youth sports teams, cheerleaders, scouts, civic organizations, and businesses. 

"As always, we ask anyone who is not marching in the parade, to come out and be a spectator that day," Barr said.
