CONROE, TX -- The Montgomery County Veterans Memorial Commission (MCVMC) is hosting the Memorial Day Observance and Dedication of The Line, The Montgomery County Veterans Memorial Monument, and the Grand Parade of “The Pathway of Flags” on Monday, May 30 at 11:00am at the Montgomery County Veterans Memorial Park, located at 1776 Freedom Blvd in Conroe, Texas, adjacent to the Montgomery County Central Library and the Lone Star Monument and Historical Flag Park.

The MCVMC invites you to participate in The Grand Parade of Flags. We will be posting 150, 3'x5' American Flags on 9-foot lanyards around Reflection Pond. Bring as many Veterans, families, and guests as you wish. You will be marching with different posts from across several counties and representatives from the county and cities from Montgomery County. Small handheld American Flags will be given to everyone who would like to “march” in the Grand Parade. There will be a short program, music by the Jazz Connection, and a wreath laying in addition to the Grand Parade.

“People are coming to the Montgomery County Veterans Memorial Park from all across the county in honor of our Veterans. United We Stand!” announced Chairman of the MCVMP, Judge Jimmie C. Williams, III, retired USMC.
