SUMMIT, NJ - The City of Summit's annual Memorial Day parade and ceremony will take place on May 30 at 10 a.m., beginning at 25 DeForest Ave. and proceeding to the Village Green.

From the battle for America's freedom that began in 1775 up to present day conflicts, the parade will honor the spirit and the sacrifices of the men and women who serve the America through military service.

The parade will be led by members of the Summit American Legion Post, and include The Summit High School marching band, Summit Police Department, Summit Fire Department, Volunteer First Aid Squad, and scout troops with Summit civic and school groups encouraged to participate and march along with veterans. .
 

Spectators are invited to gather on DeForest Avenue, Beechwood Road, Springfield Avenue and along Maple Street to the Village Green. Flags will be distributed to the crowd by marchers on the route. Veterans who are unable to march may request a convertible ride in the parade, and are asked to meet members of the American Legion at the start of the parade / 25 DeForest Avenue to request assistance.

The ceremony on the Village Green will feature music from the Summit High school marching band, a rifle salute and wreath-laying, and a special performance of “Taps.”
 
A Summit Veteran Lifetime Achievement Award will also be presented, followed by readings from local students. Veterans who attend the ceremony will receive a 2016 commemorative coin in recognition of, and appreciation for, their service.

Free hot dogs and cold drinks will be served on the Village Green courtesy of the Summit Elks Lodge.

To register an organization to march in the 2016 parade, contact Andy Smith at asmith@sslegalservices.com.
