Parade

On Monday, Memorial Day, May 29th, a dozen Slattery Detachment members met at the Hanover Township Community Center for a breakfast prior to a flag raising next door at the townhall. We got to share breakfast with many members of the local VFW, American Legion and auxilaries as well as the township politicians, police and firemen.

We then proceeded to the Whippany Park High School and fell in for the parade. Four Slattery members carried the colors while eight members rode in vintage cars during the delightful pouring rain parade. At the Legion postís finishing line everyone went indoors for the ceremony. Usually itís held on their parade lot outdoors.

When the ceremony was complete, the Legion had 2000 hotdogs and beer/soda for those who stayed. Happy Memorial Day - rainy but happy.

Semper Fi,
Tom Miller
