Memorial Day Parade
Planning is underway for the Memorial Day Parade!
Once again, The Martin Wallberg American Legion Post 3 will host this beloved tradition to honor America's heroes who made the ultimate sacrifice. The Town is assisting this effort by collecting registration information for organizations interested in marching. The parade will take place on Monday, May 29.
The day's events will begin with the traditional ceremony at 10:00 in Monument Circle to honor our fallen heroes. The parade will then process down East Broad Street and turn left on North Euclid, ending in Mindowaskin Park. The Westfield Police Department will then escort all participating veterans to Fairview Cemetery for the annual solemn service held there. Following the parade, all members of the public are invited for a gathering in Mindowaskin Park, and the American Legion will also host its annual barbecue with music and entertainment. Additional details will follow in the coming weeks. For additional information, contact James McDonald at firstname.lastname@example.org or 612-910-4100. For sponsorship opportunities, please contact Joe Mindak at 201-410-8282 or email@example.com.
Westfield Veterans Banner Program
To commemorate Memorial Day, the Westfield Veterans Banner Program will be displaying the next round of banners to recognize our veterans and active duty military personnel. The banners will be displayed from Memorial Day through Veterans Day in a partnership between the Town and the Westfield Veterans Fund, a locally established 501(c)(3) organization. Phase 1 of this program was introduced last year on July 4, when the first round of banners was unveiled on poles adjacent to Monument Circle, along East Broad Street, North Avenue, and South Avenue. The submission deadline for new banners to be included in this next round is March 31.
