2023 Denver Memorial Day Parade & Ceremony
Monday, May 29, 2023
The Memorial Day Parade will start at 9:00 a.m. at the Denver Fire Company Hall located at North 4th Street and Locust Street. The Dixieland Band will lead the march with any other groups that would like to fall in line. A short service of tribute will take place alongside the cemetery at North 4th Street with a special hymn dedicated to the veterans buried there. A representative from the Fraternal Order of Orioles Nest No. 54, Denver, PA, will place a floral tribute on the grave representing all veterans buried in our cemeteries.
Upon conclusion of this abbreviated service, the parade will resume on North 4th Street to Walnut Street, and then turn west on Walnut Street to the bandstand in the Denver Memorial Park for the balance of the service. Todd Stewart will lead the service and present the 2023 Memorial Day Ceremony Speaker Bruce Deisinger.
Following the ceremony, the procession will move to the Memorial to hear the “Roll of Honor” and “Salute the Dead” with the rifle squad of the Reinholds VFW Honor Guard. A cross for each veteran whose life was taken in the service of their country will be placed during that event.
