If you’re going to be in town for Memorial Day next weekend, you have the opportunity to join your fellow Davie real estate owners in the annual activities.
2016 Memorial Day Parade and Ceremony
The parade is sponsored by the City of Davie and the Scoutmasters Camporee Committee of the South Florida Council of the Boy Scouts of America. I think it’s great that the Boy Scouts are so involved. It will give the boys a chance to get to know the real reason behind the holiday and to honor service members who have done, and continue to do so much for the U.S.
The parade will start at 10:00 am on Monday, May 30, 2016 in front of the Davie Fire Administration building at 6901 Orange Drive. It will continue left on Rodeo Way and conclude at the Bergeron Rodeo Grounds.
Bring a flag and wear red, white and blue to show your support for the sacrifices so many members of our military and their families make to keep us safe here and abroad. Directly after the parade, there will be a Memorial Service at the Rodeo Grounds. There will be a special salute honoring the men and women who fought in the Vietnam War as part of the 50th anniversary of that conflict.
