Please join us in our tradition of honoring the U.S. men and women who gave their lives for our country.
 
On Monday, May 28, 2018, the Annual Memorial Day Parade will be held. The first Memorial Day parade held in the hamlet of West Islip took place on May 31, 1954, with over 300 West Islip residents participating. The West Islip Legion Post wishes to commemorate this 62nd anniversary of this parade by inviting all associations and organizations to join us in observing Memorial Day. In keeping with this tradition, it would be an honor if you and your team would agree to join with us.
 
Assembly time is 10:00 AM at our usual starting place with a starting time of 10:30 AM at the intersection of Roderick & Udall Road. It will proceed south to the Veterans Memorial for a short service and continue south to the Paul J Bellew school for memorial services. It has been requested that all organizations remain for the concluding services.
 
We sincerely hope that it would be possible for you to attend.
 
Come by yourself or as a team. 
Ralph's Italian Ices will be served.
