There will also be an open house and picnic at the Windham Veterans Center, 35 Veterans Memorial Drive, North Windham at noon.  

The Legion is extending an open invitation to any organization, group, or business that would like to assist in honoring our veterans by joining the parade as a unit or a float. 

This year, the Post would like to honor our WWII veterans with rides in the parade. Currently one convertible is available and there is a need for two or three additional convertibles. If you can provide this service or have any questions, contact Post Adjutant, Dave Tanguay at: 892-1306
