Memorial Day

War Memorial DedicationEach year this day of remembrance brings the citizens of Glen Ridge together for an early morning parade and service to honor their war dead as well as the living who have served.  As the years pass, the emphasis of the celebration has been determined by the history of the times.  It has varied from the commemoration of the World War I monument in 1922, with its background of the flag-bedecked High School building, to the full blown Bi-centennial parade, with floats, in 1976.  Every year adds a colorful picture to the Borough book of memorable events.
