Memorial Day 2021 is Monday, May 31. Join your community as we honor those who served. The parade begins at 9:00 a.m. at Arm's Trucking. Bring your decorated off-road or specialty vehicles or simply walk along. Children are encouraged to bring their bicycles. Patriotic decoration on vehicles and bicycles is the norm. The parade route is from Arm's Trucking to East Claridon Cemetery. The entire event takes no more than an hour. Names will be called at Claridon Center Cemetery immediately following the parade back to Arm's Trucking. Children play a key roll as they place flowers by the gravestone after each name is called. If you have a loved one whose name will be called, you or a family member have opportunity to call the name yourself. This is a special day when Claridon comes together. It is a worthy community event. Thanks to all who help each year and thanks to all who attend.
