The Laurelton Lions Club, VFW Post 5298 and other community groups honored fallen heroes in Laurelton on Monday with a parade and wreath-laying ceremony.

In attendance were Girl and Boy Scouts, the Buffalo Soldiers — who rumbled down the street on their motorcycles — veterans and community leaders and groups.

Elected officials, including Councilmembers Daneek Miller (D-St. Albans) and Donovan Richards (D-Laurelton), Deputy Borough President Leroy Comrie and former Comptroller John Liu also showed their American pride by marching in the parade.

Here are scenes of the parade and wreath-laying ceremony.

Welcome to the discussion.
