About the Parade
The Worthington Memorial Day Parade has always been about recognizing all the Men and Women that have served or are serving this great country in United States Armed Forces.
Every person or group in the Worthington Memorial Day Parade should focus on patriotism and honor our veterans who gave their life in service to this country, and those currently serving in the military. Examples of this are playing patriotic music, wearing red, white, and blue. Please display the American Flag whenever possible and do so with reverence and respect.
Remember the reason of this occasion, to honor the members of the United States Armed Forces, past and present. Some of whom have made the ultimate sacrifice for the freedoms we enjoy today.
