Memorial Day Parade & Cemetery Ceremony

Each year the Beaver Area Heritage Foundation sponsors the colorful Beaver Memorial Day Parade. All active or former military personnel are invited to march or ride, joining with the Beaver Area Senior High School JROTC, Marching Band and many other local organizations. A special Memorial Ceremony in the Beaver Cemetery immediately follows. The Program features an invited speaker, the BAHS Concert Choirs and Marching Band, recitation of the Gettysburg Address by the Senior Class President and a military salute that includes re-enactors, veterans, and a restored Revolutionary War-era cannon that will be fired as part of the military salute. A complimentary luncheon is provided by the Fort McIntosh Foundation, College Avenue, for all military personnel, program participants and their families. Note: Due to COVID-19 protocols, if inclement weather occurs, all activities will be cancelled with the exception of the Fort McIntosh Foundation luncheon which will be provided, rain or shine. For additional information, contact Chuck Snitger at (724) 728-3783.
