CAPE ELIZABETH — Memorial Day will be observed in town with a parade Monday, May 28, followed by a ceremony at the War Veteran’s Memorial on Scott Dyer Road in front of Pond Cove Elementary School.

The parade will kick off at 9 a.m. at the intersection of Fowler Road and Route 77. The route continues north on Route 77, turns left onto Scott Dyer Road, and ends at the memorial, where a brief ceremony and laying of a wreath will be held.

The parade will include members of the Cape Elizabeth police, fire and rescue departments; the Water Extrication Team; Lions Club; Rotary Club; Middle School marching band; Boy Scouts, and Girl Scouts. The grand marshal will be Robert C.

Veterans and active-duty personnel are invited to march. Families of active-duty personnel should notify Parade Chairman Jim Huebener so they can be recognized. Groups hoping to march are also encouraged to contact him by email.

Following the ceremony, residents and guests are invited to an Open House at the Town Center Fire Station.
