 Linden is gearing up for Memorial Day with some great events! Join on May 25th for the unveiling of a "Patriot Wall," the Memorial Day Parade, and Music By the Mill 2015, featuring the Jump Street Swing Band.

The Linden Arts Council in collaboration with Linden VFW Post 4642 and the Linden Community Schools will unveil the “Patriot Wall” on Memorial Day, May 25, prior to the Memorial Day Parade.

The short ceremony will be at 9:30 a. m. at the site of the “Patriot Wall” on the LaFontaine Union Block in downtown Linden. The wall is a banner 4 feet high and 10 feet long and will encourage the writing of messages and greetings to our troops.

Doug Morgan, Post Trustee of Post 4642, says "We welcomed the suggestion of this wall from the Arts Council and jumped in to make it happen . . ." The graphics and art work on the banner were done by Gemma Amendola, of the Linden Community Schools Art Department. The banner will eventually be removed and with the assistance of the VFW Post, be sent to troops overseas.

Everyone is encouraged to stop by and sign the wall after the unveiling. After the Parade, Music By the Mill 2015 kicks off with a performance by the Jump Street Swing Band at 11 a.m.
