Memorial Day Participation from Clark Rec. Director Ralph Bernardo

Memorial day Parade

On Monday, May 31st, 2021, the Township of Clark will host its Annual Memorial Day Parade. Because of the Pandemic last year’s parade was cancelled so we really want to make this year’s event BIG! At the end of the parade route at Arthur L. Johnson High School, a short service will be held to honor “Clark’s Fallen Heroes.”

 

Memorial Day commemorates the men and women who died while servicing their country, particularly those who died in battle or as a result of wounds sustained in battle. The purpose of Memorial Day is to memorialize the veterans who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.  We spend time remembering those who lost their lives and could not come home, reflecting on their service and why we have the luxury and freedom that we enjoy today. Remember to fly your American flag on this day. 

 

As the new Chairman to the parade committee, I urge you to attend the parade route and/or consider marching. With so much uncertainty and unrest on foreign ground today, with a nation so divided politically, we need to come together as a country and a township and honor our lost, support our troops, especially that so many young Clark residents are in the military. 

 

We invite your group to march in the parade. To guarantee a place in the parade, please complete the enclosed registration form and return it to the committee as soon as possible.

 

With our troops presently protecting liberty on foreign soil, we look forward to this continuation of Clark’s patriotic Memorial Day Parade and hope that you will join us.

 

If you have any questions, please feel free to call 732-428-8400.

 

Please be aware that prior to the parade, all participating will be fortified by mail of their place in line, with instructions on when and where to report.

 

Sincerely,

 

Ralph Bernardo

Chairman Parade Committee
