Lambertville to Hold Memorial Day Parade May 29

Memorial Day parade in Chicago (U.S. Government).

The City of Lambertville announced today that it will hold its annual Memorial Day parade on Monday, May 29. The parade starts at 9 a.m., and follows a route from North Union and Cherry streets to Mary Sheridan Park on York Street.

“We are proud to announce that lifelong Lambertville resident Norbert Rosso, a decorated member of the Navy, will serve as the grand marshal of the parade,” reads the city press release.

Rosso served three deployments in Vietnam, and was commended for the role he played in the retrieval of the Apollo 14 crew at sea. He is the incoming commander of Lambertville American Legion Tosconni Post 120.

Following the parade, Mayor DelVecchio and Lambertville council members will host a commemorative ceremony honoring all those who served their country with special guest speaker Cliff Heathcote, whose father was a fighter pilot in Viet Nam and never returned home. Heathcote will talk about his emotional visit to Vietnam where he retraced some of his father’s steps in the hope of getting to know his father, say organizers.

The commemorative ceremony takes place at Mary Sheridan Park, and all are invited right after to the American Legion annual picnic at 320 N. Union St.
