March in the Memorial Day Parade

The oldest of Chicago’s neighborhood Memorial Day parades, BAPA strives to keep the
focus of the Beverly/Morgan Park parade on Memorial Day as a time to remember
the men and women who gave their lives in service to our country, and to honor the men and women who have in the past and currently serve in the U.S. armed services. In conjunction with the parade, BAPA holds a Memorial Day Ceremony
and wreath-laying as part of the Ridge Run.

The founders Operation HerStory flight for women veterans are the 2022 parade Grand
Marshal, and women military veterans and on active duty are invited to walk
with them.
