The Harding Township Civic Association will again be sponsoring a Memorial Day Parade on May 31, 2021, stepping off from the Harding Middle School at 9:30 AM and moving east along Lee’s Hill Road to Village Road and then to Memorial Park on Village Road, across from New Vernon Firehouse in recognition of all veterans, particularly those that are Harding residents.
Groups wishing to march in the parade should contact firstname.lastname@example.org and plan to assemble at the Harding Middle School on Lee’s Hill Road at 9:00 AM on Parade Day.
This year we are inviting children to decorate their bicycles (helmets mandatory), wagons and scooters with colorful red, white and blue streamers and to ride in the parade in honor of our veterans. There will be prizes for the best decorations in the 7 years old and under category and for those over 7 years old.
There will be fire trucks, bands and horses and everyone is invited to march in honor of our veterans. Bring your children, your parents, your grandparents, your aunts and uncles and your pets (on a leash please) to help us celebrate our veterans on this day of remembrance.
In the event of rain, the parade will be canceled, but the ceremony honoring our veterans will go on across the street at the Firehouse 1 at 10 AM, rain or shine.
