Albany Cancels Memorial Day Parade Due To COVID-19
According to www.news10.com Mayor Kathy Sheehan and Joint Veteran’s Committee announced today that the Memorial Day Parade has been canceled due to the coronavirus outbreak.
“It is always a distinct privilege to help honor all those who have sacrificed so much for our country’s freedoms on Memorial Day,” said Albany Mayor Kathy Sheehan. “Even though we will not be able to honor our fallen veterans together in person as we do each year, it is still incredibly important to keep all those who have lost their lives in our hearts and minds on Memorial Day, and every day.”
The parade was scheduled for Monday, May 25th. Instead of a full-blown parade, Albany officials will lay a wreath at both the Gold Star Families and Vietnam Monuments.
