New Rochelle Gathers to Honor Fallen Soldiers

Peter Parente and I place a wreath at Memorial Plaza.

Read my Memorial Day remarks.

Thousands of New Rochelle residents gathered again this past Memorial Day to honor the men and women who have given their lives in service to our country and to celebrate our enduring freedoms. A solemn ceremony at Memorial Plaza was followed by a festive parade ending at Hudson Park. The United Veterans Memorial & Patriotic Association, working in concert with the City government, deserves great credit for bringing back this important civic tradition.
