Dozens of residents, veterans, and elected officials joined forces at the Annual Mineola American Legion Memorial Post No. 349 Memorial Day Parade and Ceremonies on Monday.
North Hempstead Supervisor Judi Bosworth spoke at the ceremony at Mineola Memorial Park, where she reminded hundreds of parade-goers the importance of recognizing those who gave their lives in defense of our nation.
“Memorial Day is the time for all of us to recognize those brave men and women who sacrificed their lives for the ideals that all Americans cherish,” said Supervisor Bosworth. “Today we honor the principles and values those soldiers stood for and died defending.”
Bosworth attended commemorations throughout the Town on Memorial Day including ceremonies in Garden City Park, Albertson and Great Neck.
