Annual Memorial Day Commemoration May 28, 11am, Maysey Memorial, Main St. Chester Borough, NJ

Chester will remember those in the Armed Forces who died while serving their country on “Decoration Day,” or as it is better known today, “Memorial Day.” People from the community will gather on Main Street in Chester Borough to watch the procession, listen to inspiring stories, hear moving speeches and patriotic musical arrays. Participants will also experience the rattling rifle salute and moving taps, as we honor those who gave all for our country, on this very important day. The event will take place on Monday, May 28th, 2018 at 11am at Maysey Memorial/Memorial Park in the center of town and will feature Mayor Janet Hoven as the Master of Ceremonies, with remarks from members of the American Legion Post 342 Chester, and Mayor Marcia Asdal from Chester Township. The West Morris Community Band under the direction of Gary Quam will provide music for the event along with vocal soloist & Chester resident, Mary Bolio. Our own Chester Volunteer Fire Company #1, Chester Police, and Chester Volunteer First Aid Squad will be present to honor our veterans, along with local scout troops sporting color guard and full uniform attire. Members of the American Legion will perform the ceremonious Laying of the Wreaths and Roll Call of Chester Fallen Soldiers. The event is sponsored by the Borough of Chester in conjunction with American Legion Post 342, Chester. Anyone who served or is currently serving in the Armed Forces is invited to walk in the procession to pay their thanks and should gather at the Gazebo on Main Street at 10:45am. For more details about the event please contact Recreation Director at: recreation@chesterborough.org
