The Leonard Hawkins American Legion Post 156 hosted the annual City Island Memorial Day Parade on Monday, May 30. Local organizations marched up City Island Avenue to the veterans memorial traffic circle for a ceremony honoring our nation’s fallen soldiers.

Flags adorned veterans’ graves as the color guard stood at attention listening to the sounds of ‘Taps’.
