The Memorial day parade is coming back to town on Sunday May 28, 2023.
And the public can line the streets of Norwich for the best view
This photo was taken at last years Memorial day event. (Commander Jim Harlow getting ready to start the ceremony.)
The Norwich Memorial Day Observance will be held on Sunday, May 28 beginning at 11:45am with honors at the bridge on Beaver Meadow Road. Veterans will then proceed to Fairview Cemetery for honors at Alden Partridge’s gravesite. From there, the group will proceed to the Veterans Memorial Area near the flag at Tracy Hall for remarks and honors, and conclude with the National Anthem.
The public is invited to join us at the representative stops to honor all U.S. military members who lost their lives while serving our country. The Observance will be followed by the traditional (free!) hotdogs & lemonade picnic on the green, along with a mini concert of military service music courtesy of the Upper Valley Community Band. We hope that many of you will join us at Tracy Hall and stay to enjoy the picnic, the music, and the company of others remembering our fallen heroes.
