Greece Town Supervisor Bill Reilich and American Legion Post #468 Commander Ed Wawrzaszek have made the difficult decision to cancel the annual Memorial Day Parade and Ceremony. As far back as anyone can remember, the Town has partnered with the Post to honor and pay respect for those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice while wearing the colors of our great nation.
Health and safety is our priority. Our participants, our veterans, many of whom are in their senior years, are health and safety conscious of all who participate and we thought it best to air on the side of caution.
“As the son of a twice-wounded WWII vet myself, I know the importance of this day and the lifelong impact the loss of these fine men and women takes on a family and an entire community. American Legion Post #468 Commander Ed Wawrzaszek and I will be paying tribute to these fine Americans by bringing you a remote ceremony. I had hoped that more restrictions would be lifted by this point, and I thank all of you for your understanding of this decision. Please stay tuned in coming days for details about the remote ceremony. God Bless our men and women on our front lines” said Supervisor Reilich.
