Memorial Day parade and ceremonies set in Danville

May 15—DANVILLE — The veterans of Montour County are set to host Danville's annual Memorial Day parade and ceremonies on May 27.

Ceremonies will begin at 10 a.m. at the bridge across from Zamboni Park where those lost and buried at sea will be honored.

From there, the parade will advance from Front Street down Mill Street and to Memorial Park where there will be a gathering to remember all veterans who made the ultimate sacrifice, according to a press release.

Those participating in the parade will assemble on West Front Street by the river and veterans marching in the parade can continue to gather in the bank parking lot by the court house to join the parade as it passes, the release said.

A rabbittransit van will be available to transport veterans who are disabled or cannot walk in the parade as well as those who would like to see the bridge ceremony, according to Doug Resseguie, of Montour County Veterans Affairs.

The van will load veterans from 9 to 9:30 a.m. next to the courthouse and will proceed to the bridge for the 10 a.m. ceremony, Resseguie said.

Army Vietnam veteran Raymond Tarr will speak during the ceremony at the park. Other local veterans and Danville area students, including the high school band and chamber choir, will also participate in the ceremony.

Community groups are encouraged to present a wreath during the park ceremony, the release said.
