To our beloved Whatcom community
We are extremely grateful to our community for the love and support you have shown in supporting the Whatcom Memorial Day Parade (WMDP). As you may be aware, last year was supposed to be our centennial anniversary in honoring the men and women who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our great nation.
In 2020, the pandemic compelled us to cancel the event to ensure our community members' safety. We are once again at the crossroads of a difficult decision, but we are 100% committed to doing our part in keeping our community safe. As a result, our board has made the difficult decision to once again cancel the Whatcom Memorial Day Parade in 2021.
We assure you that we will continue to honor our beloved fallen patriots and look forward to coming together as a community to honor them in our traditional way.
Speaking of heroes, we would like to thank all of those essential workers who have given so much to our community during these unprecedented times. From the bottom of our hearts, "THANK YOU & WE LOVE YOU!"
Lastly, the Whatcom Memorial Day Parade is a non-profit organization that relies on the sponsorship of locally owned businesses, contributions, and community members' volunteering efforts. Unfortunately, the pandemic has prevented us from hosting an event, but we ask that you keep us in mind and include us in your list of favorite charities to donate to.
WE LOVE YOU WHATCOM COUNTY,
WMDP Board Members
