Parishioners and member of our youth group joined forces this morning to support Rumson Borough's Annual Memorial Day Parade and Commemoration.
At the same time, Fr. Manning and the new pastor from Sea Bright Methodist Church were attending Sea Bright's Annual Memorial Service. Fr. Manning gave the Benediction to close the service which began with an invocation, patriotic songs, a talk by a WW II navy veteran, presentation of flags to the family members of deceased members of the Fire Auxiliary, and laying of wreaths at the memorial outside Borough Hall. It seemed safer to walk to the ceremony rather than take a vehicle as the boat traffic on the river was heavy and high.
