The Memorial Day ceremony and parade will be held on Memorial Day, Monday, May 27, beginning with the parade at 9 a.m. The parade will form at 8:45 a.m. on Ffyler Place and march up Mountain Road to Main Street to the Veteran’s Memorial. A Memorial Day program will take place at Veteran’s Memorial immediately following the parade to honor our fallen heroes. The Officer of the Day is Lieutenant Colonel William E. Moryto, USMC. Music will be performed by the Suffield High School band led by Joe Migliore and the Suffield Middle School band led by Corey Killian and Joe Whalen. All Suffield veterans are welcome to participate in that parade in uniform if possible. All Suffield civic organizations are invited and encouraged to participate as well. In case of rain, the parade will be canceled, and the ceremony will move to the Suffield High School auditorium at 1060 Sheldon Street at 10 a.m.
Any group who is interested in marching should contact Kris Lambert in the First Selectman’s office at 860-668-3838 or by email at fsadmin@suffieldCT.gov
