Memorial Day Remembrance Ceremony at Webster Rural Cemetery
There will be no Memorial Day Parade this year
Webster, NY - Although there will be no Memorial Day Parade this year through the Village of Webster, there will still be a Remembrance Ceremony on May 31.
In compliance with Monroe County Department of Public Health COVID safety guidelines, there will be a social-distanced Remembrance Ceremony at Webster Rural Cemetery.
According to the American Legion Cottreall-Warner Post #942 newsletter for May-June 2021, the ceremony will be conducted a little differently this year due to COVID.
There will be no crosses and placing of flags and flowers by the scouts and youth. Attendees will be asked to spread out on the grassy area, as opposed to congregating by the fence (as they have in the past). Attendees will also be expected to wear masks and social distance.
Instead of refreshments at the Elks Club following the service, Legion family and other military participants are invited to the Post Home (818 Ridge Road, Webster) for hots and soft drinks.
The Memorial Day Remembrance Ceremony will take place at 10 a.m. on May 31 at Webster Rural Cemetery, 1087 Ridge Road.
