This year it’s Hillsdale’s turn to host the Memorial Day Parade for the Roe Jan area. Monday, May 30, marchers will line up at 10:30 on Anthony Street, and the parade will kick off at 11 AM. It will proceed up Anthony Street, east on Route 23 to the traffic light, and north on 22 to the Hillsdale Fire house.
