Joining Mayor Palmer at the ceremony was Councilwoman Joan Brush and members of the Manchester Veterans Advisory Committee. All were touched by the proceedings, which included patriotic musical performances, a martial arts demonstration, presentation of wreaths by local organizations, and the playing of “taps.”
Thank you to Manchester Recreation for organizing this event each year, and to all of the residents and civic groups that were in attendance. We also thank all those who participated in the program, including the Manchester Police honor guard, Arthur M. Wright Jr., Chairman of the Veterans Advisory Committee, Rev. David Rittinger of Whiting Bible Church, the Singing Raconteurs, Manchester Township High School Marching Band, Master Manny’s Kum Sung, and Destiny Marcinczyk. You all helped to make this Memorial Day commemoration special.
A special congratulations goes to the winners of the Bike Decorating Contest, Jolene (3rd place), Caitlin (2nd place), and Sydney and Henry (1st place)!
