Dear Elmwood Park Residents,
It is with great disappointment that I report that after consulting with the Veteran’s Committee, we have no other choice but to cancel this years Memorial Day Parade. As it stands, the Governor’s Executive Order would make it impossible to have an event such as a parade.
Our plan is to have some sort of organized ceremony, once the Executive Order is lifted or relaxed, to honor our veterans, who bravely and honorably gave their lives for our great country.
On a more positive note, I have been collaborating with the Borough Administrator/Police Chief to formulate a plan to re-open our Borough Parks starting this Monday, May 4th.
We would have like to have had them open and ready for Saturday, but due to some logistical issues, it won’t be possible until Monday at around noon.
In the meantime, our County Park, Artesian Fields is open, effective Saturday, as per the Governor’s order.
Please do your best to enjoy what appears to be a beautiful weekend, weather-wise.
Stay safe and God Bless you and your family.
Mayor Robert Colletti
