Troy Flag Day Parade Committee, City of Troy Seeking Public’s Help to Preserve 50 Years of Parade History



To commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Troy Flag Day Parade, parade organizers and Mayor Patrick Madden are asking residents and members of the public to submit historical photos, videos, memorabilia, or other artifacts related to past parades. The public submissions will be used to compile a celebratory video and online photo album to commemorate the five decades of patriotism and pride represented by the annual Troy Flag Parade. The 50th Annual Troy Flag Day Parade will take place on Sunday, June 11, 2017 beginning at 1:00pm.
 
“The Parade Committee is working hard to provide the residents of Troy a memorable 50th anniversary celebration,” said Jerry Weaver, Flag Day Committee President. “We encourage all Trojans to contribute to this important preservation effort as we prepare to celebrate the red, white and blue of our nation’s flag and close the final chapter on the last five decades of this special celebration of the Troy community.”
 
“The 50th anniversary of the Troy Flag Day Parade is a major milestone for one of our City’s most important community celebrations,” said Mayor Patrick Madden. “The public’s participation in this material submission drive can help ensure a half-century of important memories and moments can be enjoyed by future generations for years to come.”
 
The City of Troy’s annual Flag Day parade is the nation's largest celebration of its kind. Materials donated by the public will be compiled to memorialize and recognize the contributions of those who have impacted community life and enhanced the culture of Troy. Examples of materials to submit are: Home videos, family photos, parade program booklets, promotional posters, postcards, and news articles.
 
Individuals interested in submitting physical materials (non-digital) should contact project coordinator T.J. Kennedy at 518-429-0489 to arrange for pick-up or drop-off. All digital files, along with inquiries, should be e-mailed to [email protected]. Materials are requested to be submitted by Monday, May 22nd, 2017.
