Memorial Observances

    Memorial Day observances begin Monday morning at 9 with a ceremony at Main Beach in East Hampton for those members of the United States armed forces who were lost at sea.

    At 10 a.m. veterans and others will begin to gather near Guild Hall for a 10:30 parade along Main Street. Traffic will be diverted onto Dunemere and Further Lanes for the duration.

    At the conclusion of the parade, people will assemble at the Memorial Green at Hook Mill, where student scholarship and award winners will be announced and local dignitaries will make remarks and offer prayers.

    East Hampton American Legion Post 419 is this year’s organizer. Its commander is Fred Overton, the East Hampton Town clerk.
