The parade will follow its traditional route, starting at Sutherland High School, marching down Jefferson Road to Main Street and culminating at the Pittsford Cemetery for a moving ceremony (procession to enter on Washington Road). Roger DeBell, Principle of Thornell Elementary School will speak at the post-parade Remembrance Ceremony. More information and a complete program agenda can be found on our Memorial Day web page.

The Memorial Day Remembrance Ceremony will include patriotic performances by the Pittsford Fire Department Band, and members of the Pittsford Sutherland High School Band. Town Supervisor Bill Smith, Village Mayor Bob Corby, Pittsford Fire Department Chief Doug Yeager, Reverend Joshua Walters, Rector of Christ Church, Vietnam War veteran Danny Barnes, and Rayson Miller American Legion Post Veterans of Foreign Wars Commander Jefrey Mason will place wreaths to honor and remember Pittsford military veterans.
