TWINSBURG -- The annual Memorial Day Parade and service will be May 29, marching from Twinsburg High School down Ravenna Road and concluding with a somber service to the nation's fallen on Twinsburg Township Square.

Twinsburg VFW Post 4929 and Auxiliary will once again organize the parade. Those interested in participating can contact the VFW 4929 at vfw4929@aol.com or call 330-425-7162.

The parade forms at Twinsburg High School at 10 a.m. and proceeds to Twinsburg Township Square promptly at 10:30 a.m. Decorated patriotic floats, vehicles and bicycles are all welcome. There will be an open house at the VFW Post Museum on the Square after the service.

Last year, about 30 groups stepped off from Twinsburg High School to begin the march.

The units make their way to the Square, where hundreds are expected to gather to honor those who gave their lives for country.

The service will once again honor the area's 29 fallen soldiers from four wars.
