Join Greater Palatine Area Democrats in marching in the Palatine Memorial Day Parade. This somber event will honor those who have sacrificed for their country. Please wear patriotic colors. Please do not bring campaign signs, tshirts or literature. Posters thanking troops for their sacrifice are appropriate. The parade is sponsored by American Legion Post 690. A 10 a.m. memorial service prior to the parade will be held at Hillside Cemetery on Smith Street, a block north of Colfax.
We will gather for the parade at 9:45 a.m. at the intersection of Cornell Avenue and Smith Street in Palatine. The parade will begin at 10:15 a.m., going north on Smith, then east on Robertson Street, south on Brockway Street, then east on Wood Street to the Veterans Memorial in Community Park for an 11 a.m. short program.
Free parking is available at Gateway Parking at Smith and Colfax in Palatine. Please sign up so we know to expect you.
