East Moriches Veterans Day Parade
East Moriches, NY - 11/10/2019
|Mission applies to the following Region(s):||Region 8, Region 9|
|About the Mission:||The Chamber of Commerce has asked the Patriot Guard to lead their 2nd Annual Veterans Day Parade and Ceremony. Motorcycles will lead the parade so as to avoid the usual sitting and possibly overheating. Members with cages will meet at Soldiers & Sailors park at the end of the half mile parade on Main St., East Moriches. We will then stand a flag line for the ceremony with many veterans of WWII and Korea as honorees. Members with music on their bikes are asked to play patriotic music if available and to fly flags from the bikes. Also have flags for the ceremony as there are very limited PGR flags.|

|Special Information:||Dress according to weather. Motorcycles will be staging by the elementary school. I will be on location early enough to direct the staging.
The parade starts at 2:00 pm but Montauk Highway will be closed a little prior so try not to be too late to stage. There is a deli close by if you need. There will be food and refreshment after the ceremony at the East Moriches Fire house on Pine Street in the village. The honored will be at the fire house if you wish to speak with them. Last year we had approximately 20 bikes and were very well received.
