LIVINGSTON, NJ — Following a commemorative service honoring those who have died defending the country, hundreds of Livingston residents lined South Livingston Avenue, from town hall to Livingston Town Center, to cheer on the many community organizations that marched in the annual Livingston Memorial Day Parade on Monday morning.

According to Memorial Day Parade Committee member Liliana Branquinho, the committee and the Township of Livingston take pride in organizing the annual parade in Livingston in honor of “all of those who lost their lives for our country.”

"Our volunteer Parade Marshals, under the guidance of committee member Angelo Degirolamo, did a phenomenal job in lining up all the participating organizations in the correct Line of March order, which is always such a challenge given the number of people involved,” she said. “The Line of March was practically perfect." 

She also noted that the weather cooperated this year, allowing the committee to host a "dry" parade, with the opening ceremony being held outside rather than inside the high school. Mayor Ed Meinhardt was also thrilled with the weather, joking that it was “perfect marching weather with Ed Meinhardt as mayor—not too hot, not too sunny, not too hot, not too cool,” after it rained heavily the year prior for Councilman Shawn Klein’s parade as Livingston’s mayor.

“As always, the Memorial Day Parade was really one of the highlights of the year in Livingston, filled with memories of all the men and women who gave the supreme sacrifice of their life so that us and all future generations can live in freedom now and forever more,” said Meinhardt. “The parade itself was a wonderful representation of what and who Livingston is—members of all the different cultures, both young and old, lining both sides of Livingston Avenue, all waving the American flag and celebrating this wonderful day of remembrance. It was another wonderful day in Livingston.”

For the record, Leslie is my wife, and this is my openly public attempt at a promposal.  

 

My twin high school seniors taught me about promposals, those cute, showy, and sometimes over-the-top ways of asking someone special to prom.  This year they have been on both the ...
