Saugerties will hold its Fourth of July Parade on Friday, July 4 at 11 a.m. on Washington Avenue. Lineup starts at 10 a.m.
All veterans are invited to be part of the parade. They will ride in jeeps, cars or trucks of the World War II era and be announced as they pass the reviewing stand. All veterans’ posts, detachments or units of any kind from the surrounding counties are invited to march with their post colors. Korean veterans may choose to be part of a Korean War group or remain with their home post, and posts with members unable to march may bring a car for them to ride in.
Any veteran or veterans’ organization interested in marching may e-mail Bob at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (845) 246-7972. Indicate the number of marchers, riders and vehicles that will take part. Directions and details will be e-mailed in return where possible.
