Sloatsburg’s Memorial Day Carried On Monday At The Fire Hall

Posted on 29 May 2017 by Editor

The Village of Sloatsburg didn’t let morning rain ruin its Memorial Day ceremony on Monday, May 29. Although the Village cancelled the scheduled parade, the local Fire Hall was filled by residents and veterans, scouts, the Suffern High School Band, and guest dignitaries to mark the occasion.

Memorial Day parades across Rockland County ran into rain Monday morning, experiencing lots of cancellations. But the Village of Sloatsburg carried on by holding its annual Memorial Day celebration at the Sloatsburg Fire Hall.

At the podium: LTC Dave Siry, West Point History Professor and featured guest for Sloatsburg’s 2017 Memorial Day festivities.

Many turned out, including the Suffern High School Marching Band and featured speaker Colonel David R. Siry, a professor of American and military history at West Point.

The Village of Suffern also cancelled its annual Memorial Day parade, opting to hold a mid-morning ceremony at the American Legion on Pavilion Road in Suffern.
