Here is the list for Memorial Day parades in Orleans County for Monday:

Albion – Parade starts near the Orleans County Court House on Main Street at 10 a.m. and proceeds to the Albion Middle School front lawn where there will be a service near the Vietnam Memorial.

Holley – A ceremony will start at the American Legion Post at 9 a.m. and proceed to the VFW Post.  Veterans will also visit cemeteries.

Lyndonville – The parade will start at 9 a.m. at the Catholic Church and end near the library.  A ceremony will be held there. For the second year, the Yates Community Library arranged to have many flags in the school front yard.

(Due to the weather being a concern for Legion members,  Lyndonville students and  equipment of the LCS band., if it is raining the ceremony will be moved indoors to the Stroyan Auditorium in the high school.  If it is raining, the parade will be canceled.)

Medina – The parade will start at 11 a.m. at the Olde Pickle Factory building and proceed to the State Street Park where a ceremony will be held.

Kendall  – The town has its Memorial Day observance on Tuesday, May 30. Kendall alternates the location among three cemeteries. This year Memorial Day will be observed at Beechwood Cemetery, at West Kendall Road and Woodchuck Alley. A short parade starts at 7 p.m. at the corner of Carr Road and West Kendall Road and concludes at Beechwood Cemetery.
