The 80th Annual Memorial Day Parade and Mass is scheduled for Monday to honor deceased members of the Chicago Fire Department and the department's American Legion Post No. 667.
Uniformed members will meet at 9:15 a.m. at the corner of Morgan Avenue and Roosevelt Road, and a procession led by the Chicago Fire Department Pipes and Drums will begin at 9:30 a.m., officials said. A mass will follow at 10 a.m. at Holy Family Church, 1080 W. Roosevelt Rd.
A roll call of all firefighters who have died since last Memorial Day will be read at the mass, and winners of the 2012 Chicago Fireman's Post No. 667 Educational Scholarship for graduating 8th graders will also be announced, officials said.
After the mass, department members will meet at a flagpole near the church for the raising of the flag, a rifle salute, and taps.
