Spirit of Princeton plans virtual Memorial Day wreath-laying ceremony

Princeton University graduate William Traubel, a retired U.S. Army Lt. Col. and historian whose focus is the American Revolution, salutes after laying a wreath during the Memorial Day Parade in Princeton on May 26.

Although the Spirit of Princeton’s annual Memorial Day Parade, originally scheduled for May 23, has been cancelled, the Spirit of Princeton organization nevertheless will commemorate the holiday with a virtual wreath-laying ceremony on Monday, May 25, at 11 a.m.

The community can watch the wreath-laying ceremony, featuring Spirit of Princeton co-chair Kam Amirzafar, and a member each from the Princeton Fire Department and the Princeton First Aid Squad, on Facebook Live (www.facebook.com/spiritofprinceton/), or through a link posted on the Spirit of Princeton website.

The Memorial Day Parade and commemoration ceremony are financed by the Spirit of Princeton, a charitable non-profit group of local residents dedicated to bringing the community together through a variety of civic events, including the Memorial Day Parade, Flag Day Ceremony, and the Veterans’Day Ceremony.

For  information about the parade or any of the associated activities, or to make a donation, call 609-430-0144 or visit www.spiritofprinceton.org

No decision has been made yet as to Spirit of Princeton’s Flag Day ceremony scheduled for June 15.
