The Williston Park American Legion Post 144 will be hosting their annual Memorial Day service and parade on Monday, May 29. 

Beginning at 9:00 a.m. Post 144 will conduct its service at 730 Willis Ave. before beginning the parade at approximately 9:30 a.m.

The parade route will begin at the Post and head east onto Old Motor Parkway, south on Broad Street, west on Hillside Avenue, north on Park Avenue, east on Center Street and south on Willis before ending at village hall.

Syracuse Street is being avoided this year to start the parade due to road work, Mayor Paul Ehrbar said. 

At village hall, a brief ceremony will be held to recognize the servicemen and servicewomen who lost their lives for the country 

The village pool opens on Saturday, June 17 and registration will be accepted at the pool from June 5 to June 16 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Early bird discounts will last until June 18, when rates will increase $75 starting on June 19. 

More information about the pool can be found on the village’s website

Village Clerk Kristi Romano said village tax bills are being sent out starting next week and they are due by July 1, when penalties kick in for bills paid after that date. 

In unrelated village news, the first summer concert at Kelleher Field will be held on June 30 at 7:30 p.m. Five Stone Band will be performing in the event presented by the village’s recreation committee.

The next Williston Park Board of Trustees meeting will be held on Monday, June 19.
