The sun was shining and Irish spirits were smiling bright as the sixth annual Rumson St. Patrick’s Day Parade marched on through town on Sunday.
Monday is Memorial Day. It is not just a barbecue day, or the signal to the unofficial start of summer. It is a day of remembrance to those United States war veterans who have died in service to their country.
In the Rumson-Fair Haven area, many veterans of World War II, the Korean War and Viet Nam are still alive. They, community, family and friends gather annually on this day to pay homage to those whose lives were sacrificed in war.
The countdown to Sunday’s third annual Rumson St. Patrick’s Day Parade has begun.
People are lighting the town green (photos of that to come) and fundraising is in full gear.
So, our Retro Pic of the Day today hones in on the first St. Paddy’s Day parade and a pack of parading cub scouts.
Are you marching this year?
