It’s with great sadness that we announce that the 2020 Royal Oak Memorial Day Parade has been cancelled. The Veterans Events Committee simply could not put the lives of our residents and our veterans organizations at risk.
We are planning for an alternate virtual event for Memorial Day to honor our veterans and commemorate those selfless soldiers who gave their lives for their country. Check www.romi.gov/parade for new information.
In an effort to raise funds for next year’s 100th Royal Oak Memorial Day Parade, the committee is selling limited-edition shirts online. The shirts were designed to inspire civic pride and unity during this trying time. All profits go directly to next year’s parade and ceremony. I hope to see you all wearing one on May 25.
