In another sign that times are returning to a state of normalcy, the town of Greenwich held the 98th annual Memorial Day Parade.
This year, as in years past, participants in the first post-COVID edition of the parade marched down Sound Beach Avenue towards Binney Park and gathered for a brief ceremony reminding us all that the true duty of Americans on this day of reflection and gratitude is to honor, in meaningful remembrance, the many service members who paid the ultimate sacrifice for their country.
Despite 2 days of rainy and overcast weather in the days prior, the conditions for the parade could not have been more perfect.
The beautiful day allowed for crowds of patriotic-minded residents to line both sides of Sound Beach Avenue, taking time out from their holiday weekend to gather with their neighbors and pay honor to those brave Americans who gave their lives for our country and our freedom.
Many community organizations marched in the parade including the Greenwich Volunteer Fire Companies, The Sound Beach Community Band, and Garden Club of Old Greenwich among many others.
