Plans set for Princeton’s Memorial Day parade

   Six musical groups have signed on for Princeton’s Memorial Day parade, which will feature a rear admiral as its grand marshal.
   The parade down Nassau Street will take place the morning of Saturday, May 25 and will be followed by closing ceremonies at Princeton Borough Hall. The parade will include a salute to the victims and heroes of the Sept. 11 attacks.
   The Spirit of Princeton, the group organizing the event, announced that Rear Admiral Howard K. Unruh, director of development relations at Princeton University, will serve as grand marshal and keynote speaker at the ceremony following the parade.
   Admiral Unruh is deputy commander of the naval surface force in Norfolk, Va. and is commander of the Naval Reserves Readiness Command Midwest, based in the Great Lakes Naval Training Center near Chicago.
   The musical groups that will appear in the parade are: Colonial Musketeers Fife and Drum Corps of Hackettstown; MacGregor Pipe Band of Ivyland, Pa.; Burlington City High School Band; Hightstown High School Marching Band; Pemberton Township High School Marching Band; and Steam Calliope mounted on a fire truck.
   The parade will again include a salute to all Korean War veterans and Korean-Americans residing in the Princeton area and southern New Jersey. A group of dancers and musicians will accompany a delegation from the Korean American Association of New Jersey.
   The parade will also include a tribute to the heroes of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. The MacGregor Pipe Band will escort representatives from New Jersey Task Force One, which will be joined by members and auxiliaries of the Princeton Fire Department and the Princeton First Aid & Rescue Squad.
All veterans as well as friends and relatives of those who perished on Sept. 11 are welcome to join the march or attend the following ceremony. For more information, call (609) 921-3800.
