Memorial Day 2013 will be an “Extra” special day in the Village of Honeoye Falls. The Village of Honeoye Falls and the Honeoye Falls American Legion Post 664 will be proud to “formally dedicate” its new Veteran’s Memorial. This project has been in the works for the better part of two years and is nearing completion. The memorial displays the American Flag and a POW remembrance flag as well a military flag displayed for each branch of the armed services. A plaque depicting each service branch logo as well as a simple “Thank You For Your Service” plaque will also be embedded in the wall. The flags and plaques will all be lighted in the evening hours. Honor bricks can also be purchased for anyone memorializing their service to our country.
We expect there to be a large crowd for this parade and dedication. Key note speaker will be Colonel John J. Perrone Jr.; Veterans Hall of Fame Award Winner in 2010 and active military service member for almost 35 years in the US Army and Army Reserves. He served as Force Protection/Anti-Terrorism Chief of the 2002 US Olympic Games in Salt Lake City, Utah. After this service Colonel Perrone served at the Commander of the Joint detainee Operations Group at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. After retiring from active duty Colonel Perrone was selected to serve as Director of the Homeland Security Management Institute at Monroe Community College. Colonel Perrone also served 30 years of active service with the Monroe County Sheriffs Department in between his years of active service with the military.
At this time we also hope to have Monroe County Executive Maggie Brooks in attendance and have invited other elected officials including Senator Ted O’Brien and Assemblyman Bill Nojay. The parade starts around 11:30 AM in the Village and will travel from the HFL High School on East Street, north on North Main to the Honeoye Falls Village Cemetery where the dedication will take place. Residents and attendees should bring their own lawn chair if needed.
We hope all Village residents received their Comprehensive Plan survey in the mail over the weekend, if you have not please call the office at 585.634.1711 and we will make sure you have one. If you are not a resident, and would still like to give us your imput , we welcome you to complete a survey on our website at www.villageofhoneoyefalls.org.
