Spring is right around the corner and it is time to start planning for the annual Memorial Day Parade. We call on our many friends and organizations in the Tri-State area to help us make the Bellevue-Dayton Memorial Day Parade the #1 Memorial Day Parade in Kentucky. With this year being our 91st, we are hoping to make it a memorable one for our veterans. With your help, I know we will accomplish this.
The parade will begin in Dayton at the Veterans Monument on Monday, May 25th at 10:30am and end at the Bellevue Veterans Club. There is no required entry fee for your participation - the parade committee depends solely on donations from local businesses, participating organizations and fellow Americans to be able to keep this tradition going. We are asking you and/or your organization to help make our 91st parade the greatest tribute ever to the men and women who gave so much for all of us. The cost of presenting this tribute to all veterans continues to increase each year and we need both your physical and financial support. Your assistance is greatly appreciated.
Please complete the enclosed entry form and return it to the undersigned address as soon as possible, so we may proceed with our plans; then, approximately ten days prior to the day of the parade, you will be notified by regular mail (or e-mail, if provided) of the location of your unit in the parade.
Remember, it is only with your help and cooperation that we can continue with this longstanding tradition. If you do not plan on participating in the parade itself, but want to help financially, please send your donation as soon as possible. Once again, we are looking forward to your support and thank you in advance.
In preparation for our upcoming parade, we will be holding several planning meetings. Those meetings are scheduled as follows:

We look forward to seeing you and thank you in advance for your support.
