Memorial Day observances in Hanover

Dear fellow Hanoverians:


No matter if this is your first Memorial Day in Hanover or
if you know the parade route by heart, our small-town observances are a slice
of Americana that we all should participate in and appreciate.  I hope you
will join our veterans as we remember the fallen among them.


There will be a Memorial Sunday church service at the First Baptist
Church on Sunday, May 24th at 10:15 a.m.

Boy Scout Troop 38 of Hanover will host their annual pancake breakfast
on Monday, May 25th at St. Mary’s Parish Hall from 7:00
– 9:30 a.m.  Tickets are available at the door; $5.00 for adults,
$3.50 for seniors, $2.50 for kids 12 and under, and veterans are free!

The Stetson House will be open from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. thanks to
the Friends of the Stetson House.  A special exhibit will feature
“Hanover Art and Artists”.

Boy Scout Troop 1 of Hanover will once again be providing coffee,
donuts, hot dogs, refreshments and baked goods for sale at the corner of 139
and Silver Street beginning at 8:30 a.m. for all those in need of nourishment
before and during the parade!

For those participating in the parade, it will
form at 9:45 a.m. behind St. Mary’s Parish Hall.

The Memorial Day parade will step off at 10:00 a.m. from behind the St.
Mary’s Parish Hall, stopping traffic on Hanover Street/139, stopping at the
Sylvester School Memorial Flagstaff to honor the WWI vets, proceeding on to
several stops and observances in the cemetery including the Urn for Unknown
Soldiers, then on to the Civil War monument and the WWII, Korean, Vietnam and
Persian Gulf monument located at Town Hall.  Highlights of the parade will
include performances from the HHS Marching Band, and speeches from elected
officials at Town Hall.  All veterans are invited to participate in the
parade that will honor their extraordinary service to our country.
