Memorial Day Celebrated Throughout Peninsula


The Memorial Day weekend was celebrated throughout the Rockaway peninsula last week under beautiful skies and high temperatures. The weather and the need to remember those who have fallen in the pursuit of liberty led to a spate of cook-outs, parades, beach-going and simply enjoying the weekend with friends and relatives. For more photographs shot during the Memorial Day Weekend, see page 82 for the beach opening ceremony, page 81 for summer activities, page 87 for the Rockaway parade, and page 88 for the Broad Channel parade. Pictured, Men who fought in very different wars take part in the Broad Channel Memorial Day Parade.
