Memorial Day Parade

May 23, 2013

Danville will hold a parade tomorrow (Saturday 5/24/2013) in remembrance of those who have died in our nation’s service.  The parade begins at 10:00am at the entrance to the Danville Elementary School and terminates at Mayo’s Market.  A ceremony will be held at the memorial across Main Street from Mayo’s Market.

In Flanders Fields
John McCrae, 1915
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
