“For the past four years, the city has collaborated with Rockledge VFW Rocket Post 4534 on a Memorial Day parade,” said City Manager Jim McKnight.

“Since the VFW will not be having the parade this year, we felt that it was still very important to commemorate the significance of this day,” McKnight said.

Admission to the ceremony is free, and the public is invited and encouraged to attend.

Light refreshments will follow at the McLarty Park Recreation Center.
