Memorial Day service planned

GLOVERSVILLE — The Gloversville Parade Committee, along with the city, is noting that the annual Gloversville Memorial Day Service will be held on Monday at the Prospect Hill Cemetery, according to a news release.

The memorial service and the placement of wreaths will take place at 10 a.m. at the Soldiers and Sailors Monument in the cemetery. Mayor Vincent DeSantis will welcome all. The Gloversville Police Department, Fulton County Sheriff Richard Giardino and members of the community will participant in the program.

The committee hoped this year the parade could take place after cancelling last year. With all the restrictions still in place when planning for the parade needed to begin, it was felt that cancelling was the best decision to make.

The parade committee is also responsible for the placement of flags on veterans graves. This has happened over the past couple of weeks by members of the parade committee and other groups and organizations, who donate their time to help ensure that no veteran is forgotten.
