Ludlow Hosts Annual Event In Recognition Of Fallen Vets

The Annual Memorial Day Parade and Ceremony will be held on Monday, May 27.  The theme of this enduring event is “Remembering those who paid the ultimate sacrifice” including fallen Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, and Marines from Ludlow, Bromley, and West Covington.

The line-up of vehicles, participating groups, and individuals walking the parade route starts forming at 10:00 am.  There will be several coordinators on the corner of Carneal and Elm to organize all participants.  The parade itself kicks-off promptly at 11:00 a.m. from the corner of Elm and Carneal Streets.  The parade route takes the participants west on Elm, left onto Adela, right on to Oak, and stops at the Veteran’s Memorial for the placing of wreaths in Bromley.  The parade proceeds back onto Elm and ends at the Veteran’s Memorial in the Ludlow Park where this year’s Memorial Ceremony takes place.

Included in the ceremony is the Pledge of Allegiance, invocation, placement of wreaths, introduction of the Grand Marshall, recognition of the veterans present, a guest speaker, benediction, and the playing of taps.

The Ludlow Civic Club will host a reception following the ceremony at the Ludlow Vets.  Need more information?  Interested in participating in the parade?  Contact  Ken Wynn at (859) 912-5806 or at winwithwynn2@aol.com
