The annual parade, sponsored by the Friday Harbor American Legion begins at 10 a.m. The procession proceeds from the Legion Hall to Second Street, from Second to Spring St. and then culminates at Memorial Park.
The parade will be followed by the decoration of veterans’ at the island’s cemeteries, and potluck at American Legion Post 163.
Thence to the Brickworks for the Memoriam to Sgt. Roy Matsumoto.
