Pelham Manor's Trustees and Village Manager were honored to attend the annual Memorial Day parade and service, co-hosted by the Town of Pelham and American Legion Pelham Post 50. This year's Grand Marshal was Captain Deidre Thomas, a nurse and daughter of LTC Eli P. "Tim" Howard, one of the greatest athletes in Pelham Memorial High School history. LTC Howard lost his life in a second tour in Vietnam. Captain Thomas' sister, Lisa, also attended the meaningful event.
Pelham Town Historian Arthur Scinta's excellent research on LTC Howard is a wonderful read.
Earlier this weekend, the Police, Fire, and DPW departments participated in the Huguenot Memorial Church's vehicle event. It was a great time seeing community members out enjoying the beautiful weather. We hope residents had a safe celebratory weekend honoring those who serve our country.
