The Ravenna Memorial Day Association seeks participation of veteran, civic, social and youth organizations in Portage County.
The group would like to expand parade participation to any interested group. The parade will be May 26. Participants should sign in at 8:30 a.m. at American Legion Post No. 331, 109 Elm St. at East Main Street.
The parade steps off at 10 a.m. The parade starts on East Main and heads west to the Portage County Courthouse, where there will be a short service at the Veterans Memorial. The parade will continue on to Maple Grove Cemetery on North Chestnut Street, where a memorial service will take place.
After the service, the Memorial Day Association will host a luncheon at the American Legion. The Ravenna Veterans of Foreign Wars post at 6000 New Milford Road also will be hosting a luncheon. Both are open to parade participants, veterans and their guests.
Anyone interested in being in the parade may contact Sharon Oostdyk at 330-654-2228 or Steve Summers at 330-801-1027.
