Mayor Karr's Memorial Day Update:

Traditionally Memorial Day in Morris Plains means the Annual Memorial Day Service and Parade, flags flying along the parade route, picnics with family and friends.  While this year's celebrations will be different than in past years, we should not lose sight of the true meaning of the holiday.  On Memorial Day we pay our respects to those who gave their lives in service to our great Country.  This weekend, let us take time to remember all of our fallen heroes in uniform and their families whose sacrifices preserve our freedom.



On Monday, May 25, Memorial Day, at 10:00 AM, we encourage all residents to go outside, standing on a sidewalk, front yard, driveway or porch singing and playing the “Star Spangled Banner” as our way of offering a "Thank You to Veterans."

This weekend, last year’s Memorial Day Service and Parade will be shared on youtu.be and the Borough’s website.

Below is the embed code, this should allow you to watch the video directly on the website without having to go to another site.

Never forget the reason we commemorate this day.  Fly your American Flag.  Help children to write or draw a patriotic thank you message to Veterans with chalk on your walkway and driveway.
