2019 Memorial Day Parade

Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 7696 sponsors the annual West Chester Township Memorial Day Parade with support for safety services provided by West Chester Township.

The VFW Post 7696 Memorial Day Parade is committed to:

- Demonstrating community spirit and patriotism.

- Honoring and remembering those who have made personal sacrifices to serve our country during the efforts of preserving our liberties as an American People.

- Bringing attention to the true meaning of Memorial Day as a holiday that honors great heroes who have served and currently serve our country and community.

The Memorial Day Parade promotes a “family friendly” atmosphere paying tribute to those who served our country.  The VFW Post 7696 appreciates your interest in participating in the parade.
