The town of Sidney’s Memorial Day Parade Committee plans to sponsor a parade and program to remember the sacrifice made by fallen service members as well as to honor past and present military members.

The event will start at 10 a.m. Monday, May 30, according to a news release from the committee.

Veterans are encouraged to walk in the parade along with Scouts and other groups who wish to honor veterans. Veterans can either walk as a group or ride in a vehicle.

Some antique cars will be in the parade and may provide transportation for veterans who do not wish to walk.

Parade participants will assemble on Transfer Station Drive starting at 9:30 a.m. From there the parade will travel one-fifth of a mile to the memorial site by the town office, where the main program will take place. Chairs will be provided; individuals can bring their own if desired.

Following the formal program, the Boy Scouts will have a barbecue with treats for sale. Sidney First Responders will have a static display of their equipment and the Sidney Historical Society will have an open house in the Grange Hall basement.

Indoor and outdoor restroom facilities will be available.

In the event of rain, the program will be held upstairs in the Grange. For more information, call Maura Gammons at 207-512-6402 or Jeff Frost at 207-242-3421.
