Organizers of the annual Little Neck-Douglaston Memorial Day Parade have planned a meeting for Wednesday night to discuss the future of this year’s event.
The parade organization posted on its website earlier this week that community members are invited to gather at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Community Church of Little Neck to work out the details of the 87th annual parade.
The letter, addressed to the community, said the Little Neck-Douglaston Parade Organization, which has run the event for the last few years, is dissolving and will no longer produce the parade, but the parade organizers hope volunteers from around the area will step forward and help provide the financial and physical support needed to carry out the tradition this year.
The letter said the United War Veterans Council, which donated a portion of the parade funds last year, has already pledged financial support for this year’s parade, along with some other community donors.
The meeting is open to the public and will be held at 46-16 Little Neck Pkwy.
