Forest Hills will honor the country’s fallen service members in a Memorial Day parade this Sunday.
The parade, which is being organized by the American Legion Continental Post 1424 of Forest Hills, will run along Metropolitan Avenue between Ascan Avenue and Woodhaven Boulevard. The parade will begin at noon and last about an hour.
The parade will conclude with speeches and a wreath-laying ceremony at Remsen Cemetery, according to the Forest Hills Times. The cemetery is named after Jeromus Remsen, who served as a colonel during the French and Indian War in 1757, and was later a Revolutionary War hero. His gravestone is the oldest in the cemetery.
