~Reminder: The Parade has been CANCELLED THIS YEAR due to social restrictions imposed by NYS.
~We are excited to partner with The Oneida Daily Dispatch with support of some local businesses to produce a 12 page special edition newspaper. It can be found in the Tuesday, May 19, 2020 edition and online for any online dispatch subscriber. Please use our "contact us" function to let us know if you would like a hard copy. We would like to get a copy to everyone who is interested.
~This year's theme is: Their sacrifice, our Freedom
At an interesting time in history, our chosen theme reflects what so many around the world are doing; Sacrificing for the health of humanity.
It is with a solemn heart that we announce that there will be no formal Memorial Day Parade this year. With that being said, the OMA will continue our mission by honoring our fallen in a private ceremony that stays within the required social distancing
Thank you for your continued support. We look forward to continuing our traditions in 2021.
