The City of Lambertville will hold its annual Memorial Day Parade and commemorative ceremony on Monday, May 27.

The parade will begin at 9 a.m. sharp, with the lineup starting at the corner of North Union and Cherry Streets. It will travel south on Union Street to Mount Hope Street, then north on Main Street to York Street, before concluding at Mary Sheridan Park.

This year’s grand marshals will be brothers William and John Shavy Shurts, both veterans from the area.

Following the parade, a commemorative ceremony will be held at the park to pay tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

William Shurts served in the U.S. Marine Corps and received the Overseas Service Ribbon, National Defense Service Ribbon, and Expert Marksmanship Rifle. Upon returning home, he dedicated himself to his family and community, working for Pinnacle Tree Service, Atlantic Products, and the Lambertville Water Company for 33 years before retiring.

John Shurts proudly served his country in the U.S. Navy before joining the New Jersey Department of Conservation. He then went on to serve 26 years with the New Jersey State Police, retiring at the rank of lieutenant in 1995.
