The simple lowdown on Fairfield

A call to march

|

Without a doubt, Fairfield has the best Memorial Day parade in Fairfield County. One of the largest, the parade features school and area bands and fife and drum corps, Boy and Girl Scouts, Police and Fire department members, floats, nonprofit organizations and, of course, veterans.
The parade, by the way, is organized by veterans with the help of a few civilians. The Fairfield Memorial Day Committee is inviting all veterans who served Feb. 28, 1961, to May 7, 1975, to march in this year’s parade. All veterans will march as a unit in the first division. No uniform is required. To participate, contact the Fairfield Memorial Day Committee via fairfieldmemorialday@yahoo.com or call 203-414-0246 no later than May 20.
The Memorial Day parade will step off at 10 a.m. on Monday, May 28, rain or shine. The theme of this year’s parade is “We welcome home our brave Vietnam veterans who served so well, with heartfelt thanks, respect and honor this 2012.”
