It was supposed to be a big celebration for the 100th anniversary of the Memorial Day service in the village of Scarsdale. Instead, it was a somber reminder of our time as the parade was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Ironically, the last time the parade was cancelled was in 1919 due to the Spanish flu pandemic. Even though the parade was cancelled, Scarsdale American Legion Post 52 Commander Tom Adamo and the Veterans of Scarsdale were not going to let the day go by without paying tribute to their fellow veterans of foreign wars who made the ultimate sacrifice. Post 52 held a small ceremony in the Scarsdale Memorial Garden, and this year they also honored Marco Bisceglia, Lawrence Brown, John DePalermo and Barrie Mabie, four members of Post 52 who lost their lives in the past month due to the coronavirus.
