Volunteers Hang Flags in Downtown

American flags donated by Project Main Street displayed in time for Memorial Day parade.

Bloomfield Avenue is dressed for next Monday's West Essex Memorial Day Parade.

Project Main Street volunteers woke up early Sunday morning to hang 30 American flags on lightposts along the business district in Caldwell.

The flags, hardware and brackets were purchased by Project Main Street, a nonprofit organization, with money raised in the community. This is the third year the flags are displayed and they will remain up through Sept. 11.

"Hanging the flags has become part of our Memorial Day tradition," Project Main Street Board member Irene Caccioppoli stated in a release. "It's a wonderful way to do something special for our town." 

Anyone interested in volunteering for Project Main Street should contact projectmainst@gmail.com. Visit the organization's Facebook page.

The West Essex Memorial Day parade steps off at 9:30 a.m. at Bloomfield and Forest avenues and culminates at Crane Park in West Caldwell.
