East Meadow soccer player Morgan Derwin came out to the parade in support of the Little League.

It was perfect parade weather last Saturday, as the East Meadow Baseball Softball Association formally kicked off its spring and summer seasons with its annual march down East Meadow streets.

Starting at Veterans Pool on the corner of East Meadow and Prospect Avenues, hundreds of children in full uniforms paraded north on East Meadow Avenue to Front Street, towards Merrick Avenue, and through the senior housing development before ending their plight at the Little League complex, located at the Merrick Avenue ball fields.

The procession was led by the East Meadow Fire Department’s Bag Pipes and Drum Corps.

A ceremony followed the march, and words were spoken by East Meadow Chamber of Commerce President Dolores Rome, East Meadow Kiwanis President Debbie Kirsh, Council of East Meadow Community Organizations President Joseph Parisi, Assemblyman Tom McKevitt and Legislator Norma Gonsalves.

Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano was also present to lend his support, along with Town of Hempstead representatives, including Supervisor Kate Murray, Councilman Gary Hudes and Receiver of Taxes Donald Clavin.
