Did you see the crowds along the parade route inMorrisville, PA? Talk about community spirit! On May 31, 2010, Morrisville Fire Department did a great job at coordinating the Memorial Day Parade for residents of Morrisville. With the help of the Morrisville Police Department and many others, the parade was well organized, safe and fun! Traffic was stopped, kids paraded down the street, and the parade continued until it reached the cemetery along Anderson Street. Once there, folks gathered around the stone Veterans' Memorial (beautified by flowers this day) to pay their respects to our fallen heroes.
Mayor Ledger addressed the crowd with a lovely Remembrance speech and Father John Eckert gave a meaningful invocation. The flint lock rifles were fired in a great display. Thanks to the Cub Scouts, flags were displayed on the graves of veterans throughout the cemetery.
Morrisville First was proud to be among the many local groups (including many fire companies) marching in the parade, with our new “MorrisvilleFirst” banner and a toy wagon tank created by local children. Our “Support Our Troops” banner got lots of cheers along the parade route. Check out the Photo Album on this website for some great photos from the day!
