Anyone who has seen the official township press release knows that the parade on Monday steps off at about 11.
What a lot of people in town don't know is that the Veterans Council - which includes the local chapters of national organizations including the American Legion, AMVETS, VFW and other groups - at about 9-ish begin a tour of the Nutley war memorials beginning at the American Legion on Franklin Avenue.
The group tours the more than one-dozen memorials across town with an entourage that ends at the American Revolution memorial in front of the high school, shortly before the parade line up begins.
In addition to marching in this year's parade, if you are so inclined, or standing along the sidelines cheering, this year, gather family and friends and be on hand at one of the memorials when the Vets gather to remember their fallen brethren.
Check out all the memorials in town.
