Make your plans to attend Granby’s annual Memorial Day Parade and program to be held on Monday, May 27. Parade Marshal and American Legion Post 182 Commander Wayne Adams announced that this year’s honorary parade marshal is United States Navy veteran James O. Hall.

The parade will line up at 9:30 a.m. in the parking lot on Bank Street and step off at 10 a.m. sharp. Stops will be made to lay wreaths at the War on Terror, Legion and World War I monuments before continuing to the cemetery. Services there will include American Legion District 1 Commander Joe Haney as guest speaker. The invocation and benediction will be offered by St. Therese’s Father William Agyemang. There will also be a 21-gun salute, and Taps will be played in remembrance of all who served.

Following the service, the parade will return to the town green and disband. After a brief recess, the Marquis of Granby Fife and Drum Corps will present a short concert. A limited number of concession stands on the green will offer food for sale.

All vehicles and floats and concessions on the green must be approved by Parade Marshal Adams. For more information, call him at 860-234-7919.
