A “BIG THANK YOU ” to Girl Scout Troop 60562 for honoring our Veterans with a Float in the Memorial Day Parade and also to the Waterloo VFW for providing a chicken BBQ lunch for our Veterans.
Waterloo, NY is the Official Birthplace of Memorial Day. Memorial Day is officially a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation’s service during wartime. For many Americans, however, Memorial Day weekend marks an unofficial beginning to the joys of summer. That is not so in Seneca County, NY community of Waterloo, which has been officially recognized as the birthplace of Memorial Day. On May 30th each year, regardless of which day of the week that date occurs, Waterloo residents gather for a parade and solemn cemetery event.
