SCARSDALE, N.Y. - The Scarsdale American Legion Post 52 will hold its annual Memorial Day parade Monday starting at 9:15 a.m.

The parade beings at Spencer Place and continues on Pompham Road, which Thomas Amado, commander of Post 52, referred to as Mount Everest. The Post has a few veterans of World War 2 and the Korean War, who will ride in vehicles to make the trip easier, said Amadao, who served in the Korean War.

Leading the parade will be the color guard from the Marines, the Scarsdale Police Department and Gen. Donald L. Singer, who will also speak at the event. Other speakers include Mayor Bob Steves, Assemblywoman Amy Paulin, among others.

There will also be about 110 students from the high school band marching in the parade, Amado said. The parade will be followed by a ceremony in Chase Park. A separate ceremony will be held at the Scarsdale American Legion Memorial Garden on Mamaroneck Road, next to the village swimming pool.

The Memorial Garden pays tribute to those who were killed or injured in all American wars, as well as those killed in the 9/11 terrorist attacks. It has 11 five-ton granite and bronze monuments commemorating American wars all the way back to the Revolutionary War, said Richard Limbacher, treasurer for Post 52, who also served in the Korean War.
