On Monday, May 29, members of the Hiscock-Fishbaugh American Legion Post 788, Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 6105 and the Hilton-Parma Honor Guard will remember their comrades with a flag lowering ceremony at Parma-Union Cemetery, 260 Parma Center Road, Hilton, at 8 a.m.

Immediately following, they will conduct a second ceremony at the flag memorial in front of the Parma Town Hall, 1300 Parma Corners-Hilton Road.

Later that morning, the annual Memorial Day Parade will start at 10 a.m. in the Village of Hilton, proceed down East Avenue from the High School onto Main Street, and end at the Hilton Community Center Gazebo on the corner of West Avenue and Henry Street.

After a short flag-lowering ceremony and wreath placement in front of the Veterans’ Memorial, the Hilton-Parma Honor Guard will render a gun salute followed by the playing of Taps.  At the conclusion of the ceremonies, local civic groups will pass out hot dogs and drinks to all in attendance.
