New Rochelle Memorial Day Activities

Written By: Robert Cox

Sunday 5/26

Grave decoration @Beechwoods Cemetery- 9:30 AM

Monday 5/27

Memorial Day ceremony at Memorial Plaza @11AM, followed by ceremony for those lost at sea @12:30 at Hudson Park.

Presented by the American Legion Post 8 and City of New Rochelle Veterans Advisory Committee.

The reduced schedule is a result, in part, of a decision by the City of New Rochelle to disassociate from Peter Parente at the request of Parente’s brother-in-law, Council Member Lou Trangucci.

Trangucci is up for election in November.

“It’s election year this November,” said Parente in a recent Facebook post. “Let’s send a message to city hall…time for new blood and a new direction for the city we all once loved”.

Parente has portrayed himself as a civil rights victim on the grounds that his free speech rights were denied because the City Council removed Parente from the New Rochelle Veterans Advisory Committee after he posted a xenophobic rant on Facebook.

“All of Memorial Day events are cancelled this year,” said Parente. “Because our ass-wipe mayor and his cronies on city council.”
