Manhasset Holds Best Memorial Parade Ever
"It was the best parade we ever had" was the remark that one heard time and time again on Memorial Day, Monday, May 29, 2000. Although the weather appeared dubious at best early on, by the time the parade began at 10 a.m. the sun was shining. Led by the Manhasset American Legion Post #304, the parade featured music by the Manhasset High School marching band as well as a number of bagpipe units. There were the regular marchers, the Manhasset Community Fund, the Chamber of Commerce, St. Francis Hospital and many troops of Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts and Brownies. The biggest presence was that of the recently organized Manhasset Baseball League which made a wonderful showing. With the conclusion of the parade, after the Plandome Fire Department and the Manhasset-Lakeville Fire Department did us proud with their brilliant red fire trucks, the Memorial Day ceremony was held, as usual at Memorial Field.
