Dear Canton Residents,
We are fast approaching Memorial Day, a time to remember and appreciate the ultimate sacrifice that our service men and women have made. Please join me and this year's Grand Marshal, Greg Sims, as we march at the Memorial Day parade on Monday, May 27th. If you are a Veteran and would like to march or ride in the parade, please contact Claudia Nardi, Executive Assistant to CAO & First Selectman at (860) 693-7841. We can arrange for you to be picked up prior to the event. In addition, the Canton Community Center will be open to Veterans for coffee and donuts on parade day at 8:45 a.m.
Civic or youth groups that wish to march are also welcome to join; if interested in joining please contact Claudia at (860) 693-7841. All groups should plan to gather at the Canton Intermediate School at 9:30 a.m.
The parade begins at 10:00 a.m. heading south on Dyer Ave; taking a right onto Maple Ave; taking a left onto Main Street; taking a right onto Center Street and proceeding to the Village Cemetery where a memorial service will be held.
Whether you are marching or viewing from the parade route, I hope you are able to join us as we honor our Veterans on May 27th.
