The Town of Dover’s 2016 Memorial Day ceremony and parade will be held on Monday, May 30, 2015 at 4:00 p.m. The event will take place at the Dover Town Hall on the Springdale Avenue side.
Immediately following the ceremony the parade will form on Springdale Avenue. The marchers will parade to the Town Monument and then enter Highland Cemetery for the reading of those Dover veteran’s that died while serving our Country.
After the short service at the Memorial Star and Flag pole the parade will then return to the Town Hall for the raising of those colors.
The organizers of Dover’s Memorial Day ceremony and parade hopes to have a large participation of veterans and their families in attendance, as well as other Town organizations and townspeople.
All are invited to attend and pay tribute to those veterans that have given us the freedoms we have, but are no longer with us. Our thanks goes to The George B. Preston Post 209 of The American Legion for hosting a cookout at the conclusion of the ceremonies for all townspeople.
Again, all are invited to attend and to pay tribute to those veterans that have given us the freedoms we have, but are no longer with us. Remember, Monday, May 30th at 4:00 p.m. Dover Memorial Day Ceremony.
