Memorial Parade kick-off April 19

January 29, 20230

When the Beverly/Morgan Park/Mt. Greenwood Memorial Day Parade steps off following the Ridge Run on Monday, May 28, everyone in the line of march and gathering along Longwood Drive to watch the parade should reflect on the true meaning of the day: Honoring the men and woman who have given their lives in active service with the U.S. Armed Forces.

With members of the American Gold Star Mothers leading the parade as Grand Marshals, the solemnity of the day will be particularly poignant. Gold Star Mothers have lost a son or daughter in military service. Neighborhood resident Modie Lavin, whose son Marine Cpl. Conner T. Lowry was killed in action in Afghanistan in 2012, will be among the Gold Star Mothers in the parade. Lavin is the family outreach coordinator for the Road Home Program for veterans at Rush University Medical Center, presenting sponsor of the parade, which is organized by the Beverly Area Planning Association (BAPA).

All area Gold Star Mothers are encouraged to join the group of parade Grand Marshals. For more information, call Grace Kuikman at BAPA at (773) 233-3100.
