Remember. Respect. Revere.
Memorial Day ceremonies in West Chester are organized each year by local veterans groups VFW Post 7696 and American Legion Post 681.
On Monday, a morning Memorial Day Parade makes its way down Cincinnati-Dayton Road through the historic Olde West Chester business district to West Chester Cemetery (a.k.a. Brookside Cemetery) on West Chester Road for a special remembrance ceremony.
While the parade is in motion, members of the West Chester ~ Union Township Historical Society read aloud the names of all veterans interred at the cemetery where 800 are laid to rest, including 100 Civil War veterans and one Revolutionary War veteran.
Motorists should expect Cincinnati Dayton Road to close between about 10 and 11 a.m. for the parade.
The Memorial Day Parade promotes a family-friendly atmosphere and is intended to pay tribute to those who serve our country. All participants must agree to follow the guidelines and rules set forth by the organizers.
