We have been invited to march with the American Legion in the West Essex Day Parade again this year. This is a fun, meaningful and memorable experience as we support our veterans in a very visible, public way. It is also great public outreach for CAP.

Meeting Timeno later than 0830
Meeting Location
James Caldwell Post 185 Building, 303 Bloomfield Avenue, Caldwell.  Best drop off: Forest Ave in Caldwell.
Pick up timeapproximately 1130, at end of parade.
Pick up location end of the parade, Crane Park Parking in West Caldwell Library lot, 30 Clinton Road, West Caldwell.
Bring with you: Water, CAPF32 (attached) and CAPF 161
You should keep in mind that Bloomfield Avenue will be a busy and crowded with parade preparations, with likely shutdown at 0830 in front of the building.  The best drop off location will be on Forest Avenue, Caldwell, close to Bloomfield Avenue. There is a parking lot just behind the building, just, accessible just before Bloomfield Avenue.  There is a NY Community Bank on the corner of Forest and Bloomfield. Turn right just before the bank into the parking lot.  Forest Avenue may be closed off to traffic, the last block before Bloomfield Avenue.  Parents MAY be able to drive past barricades to drop off.  If not, they can drop off their cadets.
