Elmira- The Chemung County Veterans Council and the City of Elmira announce the schedule for the 2016 Elmira Memorial Day Parade and Memorial Service at Woodlawn National Cemetery.

     The parade assembly area will be Park Place from the corner of Washington Ave. to Clinton Ave., and Clinton Ave. from Park Place to College Ave. for Fire Departments. The Elmira Police Dept. will enforce a parking ban on Park Place and Clinton Ave. in the assembly areas beginning at midnight May 29th. Violators will be towed.

     Parade assembly will begin at 8:00 AM. Park Place and streets crossing Park Place will be closed to traffic beginning at that time.

     The parade will begin promptly at 9:30 AM on Monday, May 30th. The parade will begin at Washington Ave., proceed north on College Ave. to Roe Ave., turning west onto Roe Ave. to Davis St., then turning north on Davis St. to Woodlawn National Cemetery where the parade will end.

      We urge all veterans to proudly wear some uniform item, decoration or hat that will identify them as a proud American veteran. Recent changes in United States law allows ALL VETERANS to render a military hand salute as the American Flag passes. All others should place their right hand over their heart as the flag passes.
