Memorial Day Brings Out Crowds, Vets

The weather cooperated, the Brownies and Scouts were out in force, the fire engines and marching bands were in formation, and Larchmonters turned out for another fine Memorial Day parade on May 21. Click here for a slideshow of photographs by William Sutherland.

On Memorial Day itself, May 25, members of Veterans of Foreign Wars David Potts Jr. Post 1156 gathered in Mamaroneck’s Tompkins Park for their annual Memorial Day ceremony. The official VFW Memorial Day Service was conducted by Commander Burt Corwin, Chaplin Tom Santoro, Senior Vice Commander Dom Suppa, Junior Vice Commander Joel Munchoff and Quartermaster John Donovan.

The service concluded with a stirring rendition of Taps by Jeremy Forsyth from Mamaroneck High School. Following the service, Commander Corwin, Assemblyman George Latimer, County Legislator Judy Myers, Town Supervisor Valerie O’Keeffe, Larchmont Village Trustee Anne McAndrews and Mamaroneck Village Mayor Kathy Savolt each spoke briefly. The common theme of their remarks was that all of us need to pay tribute to those who have heeded the nation’s call to serve, especially those who made the ultimate sacrifice, and that their sacrifice is meaningless without remembrance.

    For more than 24 years, I lived at 215 larchmont Ave., so every year, the parade passed our house. In the late Forties, so many veterans marched. I would always follow the end of the parade to attend the memorial ceremony at the flagpole near the old railroad station. Later in the day, the Larchmont all-star fast pitch soft ball team would play a doubleheader at Flint Park against the great Grumman Aircraft team.
    Wonderful memories of a long-gone time.
