Dear Friend: 

The Wilmington Memorial Day Committee asks for your financial support to help make possible the 2019 Wilmington Memorial Day Parade. 

This year marks the 152nd consecutive observance of the traditional Memorial Day, May 30, in Wilmington, DE. 

The tradition began in 1868, when a group of New Castle County citizens formed a Memorial Day Committee to honor those who died in the Civil War. 

The parade lines up at 5:15 p.m. and steps out at 6:00 p.m., May 30, from Delaware Ave. at Woodlawn Ave. 

Participants march east down Delaware Avenue to the Civil War Monument at Broom St., where we honor the dead of all wars with a memorial service. 

We feel it is important, as we know you do, to pass on the tradition to our young people of honoring those who have given their lives for our country. 

Your financial support will help defray our parade expenses and be a tribute to those who have died for our country. 

For your convenience, our sponsor contract is enclosed with this letter.
