Monday, May 27 is Memorial Day and as is our tradition in Webster, there will be a parade to celebrate our veterans who have sacrificed so much for our freedoms. The parade will line up at 9 a.m. at the Spry Middle School and will start at 9:30 a.m.

The parade travels down South Avenue to Main Street and ends at the Webster Rural Cemetery. At the cemetery, there is a service that will take place to honor our fallen heroes. Some have asked whether the Town Board will be marching in the parade and that answer is no. The Town Board believes that this is a solemn day to be set aside to remember our Veterans and not a day for politics.

Please come out on Monday, May 27 for the parade and join the veteran groups, boy scouts, and girl scouts to honor our veterans.

Please note that the Webster Town Hall building will be closed on Monday, May 27 in observance of the Memorial Day holiday. The Town Hall will reopen for regular business hours on Tuesday, May 28 at 8:30 a.m.
