Monday's Annual Memorial Day Parade will take place starting in front of VFW Post 1089 (121 Main St.) and American Legion Post#170 (125 Main St.) building at 10:30 a.m.

The Wadsworth High School Marching Band will lead the way, with many Veterans' Groups, Boy Scout, Girl Scout, and Cub Scout Troops, and local schools following their lead.

The parade route winds through the Historical Downtown square, then heads West on College Street, ending at Woodlawn Cemetery.

A ceremony will be held, with speakers sharing their thoughts on the significance of this National holiday, as well as a placing of wreaths for each American War that has taken place throughout our country's history, and a reading of names of local Veterans who have passed since the last ceremony.

It is a moving experience that many of our town's residents make a point to never miss.
