2017 is flying by and Memorial Day weekend, the unofficial kickoff to summer, is upon us. It is a weekend full of cookouts, fireworks, trips to the beach, and a chance to spend with family and friends. But more importantly it is a time to remember and pay honor to those who have died in active military service.
How will you be spending your weekend? Our town of Doylestown is known as the town with the longest running Memorial Day Parade. It first started in 1868!

This year, the United Veterans of Doylestown are hosting the annual Memorial Day Parade on Monday, May 29, 2017, beginning at 10:00 AM. The parade features marching bands from all of the local high schools and middle schools, floats from local organizations, veterans, and more. It’s a great time with family and gives you the perfect chance to thank a veteran. For information on the parade route, visit this site.
Have a safe holiday weekend. We hope you enjoy time your time with family and friends.
And, please take a moment to THANK all who have served!
Thanks to all who have served our Country and our communities.
