NUTLEY, NJ - Nutley will host the township's 100th Anniversary Memorial Day Parade on Monday May 27, 2019.
“The Memorial Day Parade serves as a tribute to honor all of our U.S. service men and women who selflessly and valiantly gave their lives to protect our freedom and liberty,” said Mayor Scarpelli
Nutley Mayor Dr. Joseph P. Scarpelli and the Board of Commissioners are inviting family members of soldiers, both past and present, to march in the parade. They are also asking for the names of those in our community who are currently serving. These names will be added to an already existing banner which will proudly be carried throughout the parade, and then displayed on the Nutley Park Oval fence outside of the Town Hall.
The mayor and commissioners also offer special thanks to the Nutley High School’s students and faculty for their Wall of Honor which salutes our fallen heroes.
The 2019 route is the same as previous years: from the Oval, turn on Chestnut Street to Passaic Avenue to Centre Street to Franklin Avenue, with the reviewing stage in front of John H. Walker Middle School.
The Memorial Day Parade welcome will begin at 11:00 a.m.at the Nutley Park Oval. with Rev. Jill Fenske offering the prayer at the opening ceremonies.
“Memorial Day is a day we put aside to honor our fallen heroes and pray that no heroes will ever again have to make the ultimate sacrifice protecting our nation,” concluded Scarpelli.
