WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. – Judge and former Marine Denis Donovan will lead the city’s annual Memorial Day parade Monday.

The parade will begin at 10 a.m. at the White Plains Library on 100 Martine Ave. and continue to the Rural Cemetery on North Broadway. A ceremony will follow, featuring honors at the Soldiers and Sailors Monument at the cemetery. The community parade is done in cooperation with the Veterans Board.

Donovan went to law school under the GI Korean War Bill, later graduating from Fordham Law School in 1959. He served 24 years and retired as a Lieutenant Colonel in 1976. He has also retired from the state judiciary after 40 years and now arbitrates with National Arbitration and Mediation.

“Our great national tradition of remembering those who died to defend our freedom and democracy - Memorial Day - remains just as important now as when it was first enacted in memory of the soldiers who fought in the Civil War,” Mayor Thomas Roach said. “Great sacrifices are made every day by the men and women of the Armed Services. Their sacrifices remind us anew to be grateful for what we have as a community and a country.”

Parade marching groups include:

  • White Plains Veteran Posts
  • White Plains Boy and Girl Scout troops
  • Churches
  • Schools
  • Community organizations
