To the editor:

American Legion and Legion Auxiliary Post 983 in Cairo would like to thank the entire Cairo and surrounding community area for coming out on Memorial Day to Honor and Remember our fallen Service Members by participating, watching or simply taking a minute to reflect.

Monday’s Memorial Day Parade, Ceremony and the reception afterwards wouldn’t be successful unless local businesses and individuals stepped up to help us out.

Post 983 would like to thank the following businesses and organizations for helping make Monday’s Memorial Day Parade and Ceremony and the reception under the pavilion afterwards such a huge success: Hannaford’s, Freihofer’s, Price Chopper; Bavarian Manor, Stewart’s Shops, Big Top Tent and Zanadu Entertainment.

Thanks to members of Grace Assembly of God for supplying and handing out water. Thanks to the Greene County Sheriff’s deputies for helping out with the parade while Cairo Police were handling the motorcycle event. Thanks to the paramedics and ambulance crews for providing coverage, and the Round Top and Cairo Fire Departments for their participation and coverage during the day’s events.

Thanks to both the Town of Cairo Parks and Highways departments for their assistance. Thank you Bill Wolf of Wolfie’s Automotive for use of the Corvette and driving our Grand Marshal, LtCdr Carol Caruana, USN (Retired). Thanks to the Cairo-Durham Marching band. Thank you all!

Mike Adrian

Commander Post 983
