Please note the assembly starts time of 5:45 PM

and start of Parade time of 6:30 PM

 

The Parade will NOT be preceded by the running of the

Scotia-Glenville Elementary Mini-Marathon

 

Note from the Veterans Memorial Committee

 

There has been a “problem” with some of the parade participants in the past. This concerns the distribution of items to spectators. It has been brought to our attention that some units are passing out materials (papers, candy, etc.) while in the line of march of the parade. Any items distributed during the Parade must be physically handed, not thrown to, Parade participants. We of the committee do not want anyone injured chasing anything distributed during the Parade. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter. Any participant not cooperating with this instruction will not be invited to participate in the Parade again.

 

We have rearranged the formation of the Parade in order to let the

Participants see the Parade prior to their being in it. 

 

Groups in the Parade Orders that are not at their respective assigned places

at the time of their ordered step off - the properly placed units are to proceed without them.

The 109th Air Wing has extended an invitation to the Parade and Services

participants to visit the NCO Club after the Parade for refreshments.

Cash Bar. Please feel free to take advantage of this opportunity.
