The Absecon Memorial Day parade went on as planned although the skies threatened, with morning rain leading up to start time and a slight misting during the parade. For the most part the rain held and the parade as well as the memorial event which followed went very well. There were many entries and a great crowd.
The Galloway Patriot was proud to lead with VFW Post 9462 as the combined honor guard, “Last Salute”. At the memorial the cannon was fired, the memorial bell was rung, the rifles fired and taps was played to honor those who have died in service to our great nation.
The memorial service also included many patriot songs sung by “Sweet Inspiration”. Wreath’s were presented by the Absecon American Legion, Absecon VFW, Absecon Rotary, the Knights of Columbus and the Absecon Ambulance squad.
We hope you enjoy the photographs.
