Memorial Day Parade
We Thank You for Your Service
We are pleased to announce this year's Memorial Day Parade Celebration will be held on Monday, May 29, 2017. As in the past, we will begin the day in Crete Park with a Veterans Memorial Service at 11 a.m., followed by the parade kickoff at noon. The parade will begin in Crete Park, travel down Main Street, and conclude at Burville Road.
This year the parade will focus on the theme, "Crete Remembers Lest We Forget" and will honor the service and memory of those veterans who have served this great nation. In addition, we continue to support and honor our troops currently serving our nation to secure democracy and preserve freedom.
At 11 a.m. in Crete Park, the annual Memorial Service will take place. The service includes patriotic music, an invocation and benediction by local clergy, the placing of a wreath in remembrance of our fallen heroes and a guest speaker who provides insight into this special day. In addition, the names of Crete veterans who lost their lives for our country are read aloud so the community never forgets the sacrifice they made. We urge all members of the public to join us in the very special tribute to our veterans.
