Memorial Day Parade

Also Seeking Volunteers to Help Decorate the
Graves of our Veterans on Saturday, May 11th

This years Memorial Day Parade will commence as usual
from Terryville Fire Department Headquarters at 10:30 AM on
Memorial Day. All participants are reminded that this is a rain
or shine event and that weather decisions involving participation
are up to your own group. Memorial Day is a somber occasion
so please use prudence when marching as this is a day
we remember and honor those that paid the ultimate sacrifice
for our Freedom.

The Grand Marshal of the parade this year is William Allread.
Bill is a US Navy Veteran and for many years has been
handling the PA and music systems for the ceremony. The
parade will conclude at The Veterans Memorial on the town
owned section of Baldwin Park where the traditional Ceremony
will take place. This years Ceremony is dedicated to Terryville
Native PFC Charles Manarel. PFC Manarel was killed
in action on June 11th, 1969 in Quang Ngai, Vietnam. He was
with A Co 1st Battalion 52 Infantry Regiment.
