Warrensburg Memorial Day parade coming up

Warrensburg Memorial Day Parade, the annual holiday that honors veterans - and ushers in the summer season - is scheduled to be held Monday May 31. The parade is co-sponsored by the American Legion Post No. 446 and V.F.W Post No. 4821.

Following tradition, the parade will leave the firehouse on Elm Street at 9 a.m. and proceed up Elm and Hudson streets to the cemetery, where a memorial service will be held. After the ceremonies, parade participants will march back to the firehouse. In case of rain, the parade will be cancelled and the ceremonies will be held at the Warrensburg Elementary School. Following the celebration, refreshments will be served at the V.F.W. Post on Main St.

Anyone wishing to join in this patriotic tribute is welcome to do so. Please call the parade chair Ray Hensler at 494-3456 to establish your position in the parade.
