New Hyde Park Parade 2001-A Washout
In only the third time since 1946 the New Hyde Park Memorial Day Parade was canceled due to rain. Other canceled parades were both in the 1960s. Just at 10 a.m. when the parade was about to step off at Hillside Boulevard and head for Jericho Turnpike the heavens opened and it started to pour rain so VFW Commander Mario Obertis called the parade because of the amount of young children that would be marching.
It has come to our attention that in the May 25 issue of the Illustrated News reporting on the Merillon Baseball Game between the Pizza Pirates and Lazio Pizza held on May 11 that Mike Colavito pitched four innings and had 11 strikeouts. Sorry for the error, however, if the reports are not typewritten it is a very safe bet that some names if not all, or some stats if not all will be incorrectly reported. Thanks. mdw.
