Prior to the parade two ceremonies will be held to demonstrate the borough’s gratitude to those who paid dearly to preserve our way of life: 9:30 a.m. at the firemen’s memorial ceremony at McBride Avenue and Memorial Drive, and 10 a.m. and the war memorial ceremony at McBride Avenue and Brophy Lane.

The parade will commence at Glover Avenue and McBride Avenue at 11 a.m. and proceed along McBride Avenue and down Memorial Drive where the viewing stand will be located this year, at the Boys & Girls Club.

Following the parade a monument dedication remembering those who lost their lives from West Paterson in service to the United States will be held at Memorial School at 12 noon. There, 14 newly planted trees, each to remember one of the 14 lost from the borough, and a memorial will officially be rededicated.

“Quite frankly, the students at Memorial School don’t even know why the school is called what it is,” said Mayor Keith Kazmark. “We wanted to restore the meaning of this, why its dedicated to Memorial School.”

Memorial School, opened in 1958, was built on the site of two farms. The name, Memorial School, was chosen by the late Alfred H. Baumann, who served as principal at the school as well as mayor for 29 years, to honor the dedicated men and women who served in our armed forces.

In addition, a street fair will be held along McBride Avenue from Memorial Drive to Lackawanna Avenue from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
