It's a day to fly the flag at half-staff, visit cemeteries and memorials.
It's also a day to commemorate our soldiers who have died while in the military service, as will be the case at Palmerton's Memorial Day Parade.
The parade will start at 10 a.m. Monday, May 30, at Second and Delaware Avenue. It will form at 9:30 a.m. at Dynamite Woodworking, at Second and Delaware Avenue. From there, it will continue on to Fifth and Delaware, where it will turn left at the former IGA Golden Key Market to Franklin Avenue, and then back to the park, where it will disband.
