    Weather Alert:  The extended weather forecast shows mostly sunny, with a 10% chance for a shower or thunderstorm with temperatures in the mid to upper 70’s.  It looks as if we will have a nice day but should we encounter inclement weather the memorial ceremony will be held at the American Legion Hall at 10:30am.  Please check the Town website for any parade cancellation information.

    Additional Parking Option:  This year due to the change in parade route, parking will not be allowed along East Haddam Moodus Road and Leesville Road.  Arrangements have been made with the Iglesia Ni Cristo Church (Johnsonville) to use their field on Johnsonville Road for parking.  Please follow the signs designating the additional parking area.

    Shuttle Bus:  The Senior Center bus will be running a shuttle loop from the American Legion Field and Johnsonville parking area then back to the Municipal Office Complex parking lot for anyone needing a ride back to their car at the conclusion of the parade and ceremony.  The shuttle bus stop is noted on the American Legion map below. 

    Please Note:  With the warm and sunny weather forecast we would like to remind all participants and spectators to bring plenty of drinking water and sun screen.
