Mayor Michael J. McGlynn today announced that the Aleppo Temple Shriners will be a part of Medford’s 385th Anniversary Parade on Sunday, September 27th, beginning at 2:00 PM. As people can now see from the red, white, and blue striping, the parade route begins at Medford High School, proceeds down Winthrop Street to High Street and Riverside Avenue, and disbands at Medford City Hall.
“We are so happy to welcome the Aleppo Temple Shriners back to Medford’s parade. They provide such important services to many ill children and we are proud to have them join with us. Many community groups and local businesses have already signed up to march, including: Medford Girl Scouts, Roberts Elementary School, Medford High School Band and Cheerleaders, Dabbs Lock, Tibetan Association of Boston, Boston Windjammers Band of Rhode Island, Medford Boy Scouts, Medford Public Library, Carubia Brass Band of Ipswich, Teamsters Local 25, and many Minutemen and local veteran groups, just to name a few,” said Mayor McGlynn.
“We want this to be one of the biggest parades Medford has ever had, so if you or your organization has not signed up, please do by contacting Lisa Evangelista at firstname.lastname@example.org at your earliest convenience. The parade will celebrate Medford’s rich history as well as pay homage to our veterans. We welcome one and all for Medford’s 385th Anniversary,” said the Mayor.
