We will meet at 9:15 at the Green High School parking lot to line up for the Memorial Day parade. Members and their friends and families can ride Jim St. John's hay wagon or walk along. Dress is patriotic or historic. We will hand out 2000 small flags to the crowd. The Cub Scouts will assist us in handing out flags and some of their small ones and parents will be on our wagon. Please join us if you can. We are entry number 12. Thanks.

Memorial Day Parade Line-up Number: 12, Green Historical Society
Thank you for choosing to participate in the City of Green's Memorial Day Parade on Monday, May 26, 2014. Please read these parade instructions thoroughly and communicate to all your parents, children, family and friends. The parade will step off at 10:00 a.m., departing from the Green High School parking lot.
Line-up for parade entries will begin at 8:00 a.m. All parade entries must enter the parade line-up site from the east drive of the high school parking lot. Parade start and end location will be the Green High School parking lot. Entry to parade line-up will be accessible only from Boettler Road. No parking will be permitted at the Middle or Intermediate Schools. To drop off an individual that is participating in the parade, please use the east side high school parking lot (from Boettler Road). Once your parade entry has traveled the entire parade route, we ask all entries to travel back to the Green High School parking lot to disburse or unload parade participants. No one will be permitted to stop in the Middle School drive or parking lot to unload; Summit County Sheriff will be on hand to keep a continuous traffic flow.
Some general parade guidelines: with the addition of two new Emergency Rooms on Massillon Road, we ask that if you hear sirens, please stop the parade progression as if you were in a vehicle. If you have children participating in the parade, we ask that they do not throw the candy like it is a baseball or a missile. We have had children watching the parade progression getting hit by flying candy as well as children running into the street to retrieve candy and almost getting hit. If you are throwing candy, please let your walkers distribute by tossing gently to parade observers. The Massillon Road route will be using the west two lanes, please throw candy to the west side spectators only.
We encourage everyone to attend the Memorial Ceremony held at the Veterans Memorial Park at 11:15 a.m.. This short Memorial Ceremony is a small way in which we can say thank you to our brave soldiers and Veterans. Join our community as we demonstrate our gratitude for the sacrifices these brave men and women make every day.
