Good afternoon everyone! This is the day that the Lord has made.
Let us rejoice and be glad in it!
This weekend is Memorial Day weekend. We remember all the brave men and women who sacrificed their lives for our freedoms. We also give thanks to all those who continue to fight for our freedoms.
We will be marching in the Saddle Brook Memorial Day Parade this afternoon at 1:30pm to honor those fallen soldiers. We will meet at the corner of Schepis Avenue and Fairlawn Parkway no later than 1pm. The parade will process down Fairlawn Parkway to Cambridge Avenue to Saddle River Road to Market Street. The parade will end by Washington School (225 Market Street). We look forward to seeing you all along the parade route.
Christopher's Chat will be available to watch on our YouTube channel later this afternoon.
