Memorial Day is an American holiday, observed on the last Monday of May, honoring the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. Memorial Day 2018 occurs on Monday, May 28. Originally known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971. Many Americans observe Memorial Day by visiting cemeteries or memorials, holding family gatherings and participating in parades. Unofficially, it marks the beginning of the summer season.
Jackson Township will observe Memorial Day with its annual parade; note new parade route this year. The parade will begin at Holman Elementary School at 10:00am, proceed down Manhattan Street, and then end at Johnson Park. A Memorial Ceremony will take place at Johnson Park to conclude the event.
