Please join us this year for our 77th Anniversary Memorial Day Parade on May 30th starting at 11:00 am. We encourage ALL VETERANS to join us and march in the Parade. Cars are available for Veterans needing a ride. There will be a ceremony at the Veterans' Memorial on the Town Green following the parade. The Public is invited to join in.
Look for us soon at Avon Walmart and Canton Shop Rite!! Buy a Poppy and help your local veteran charities. We gave over $20,000 last years to local and veteran charity organizations!
Coming home doesn't mean the battle is over. With over 10 times the amount of veterans lost to suicide than to combat operations in the same time period, there has never been a more important time to TAKE A STAND and DO something to support our veterans!! If you or someone you know is suffering from PTSD, we have people that have shared a similar experience and are ready to help.
