POTSDAM — AMVETS Post 282 is seeking participants for a Memorial Day parade.

This is the first year for the parade since the COVID-19 pandemic began.

The parade is set for 5 p.m. May 30.

Anyone who wants to participate can email amvetspost282@gmail.com.

“With the easing of the restriction concerning COVID-19, we feel that this year it may be possible to continue the tradition of Memorial Day by having a parade and ceremony in Ives Park at the veterans memorial site,” parade committee chair Stanley F. Crump wrote in an announcement.

“To make the parade a true tribute to our fallen comrades, we need participation from the organizations and citizens of Potsdam.”
