Commander Walter Gledhill, American Legion Post 351, places a memorial wreath at the Penn Hills Municipal Building as part of the annual Memorial Day Ceremony and Parade on Monday, May 29, 2017.

The annual Memorial Day parade in Penn Hills is on.

Parade participants will step off at St. Bartholomew Catholic Parish, 111 Erhardt Drive, at 11:30 a.m. on the holiday and proceed to the parade's traditional destination, the municipal building at 12245 Franks­town Road. A ceremony will be conducted there at noon.

Parks and Recreation Supervisor John Scaglione said the parade route might change next year because the new municipal building, which is expected to open in June, is located on Duff Road.

For this year, though, the route is unchanged, he said.

Scaglione said the municipality is still accepting applications to join the parade through May 25.

“We're looking for groups, businesses, nonprofits, community groups, anyone. We accept classic and antique cars. We're looking for floats, marching bands,” he said.

Those interested in participating are encouraged to contact Scaglione at 412-798-2147 or jscaglione@pennhills.org.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
