May 27, 2019 is Memorial Day, a day set aside for remembering the people who died while serving in the country's armed forces. Narberth's Memorial Day Parade sponsored by American Legion Post 356 and the Narberth War Memorial Committee is scheduled for Monday, May 27th starting at 9:30 AM at the intersection of Windsor and Conway. The main viewing area is Downtown Narberth but travels through some neighborhood streets. There is a memorial service immediately following the parade at the Narberth War Memorial (N. Wynnrwood and Windsor).
Parade Route: The parade starts at Windsor and Conway; Conway to Price; right on Price, to Narberth; right on Narberth, to Woodbine; left on Woodbine, to Iona; right on Iona, to Haverford; right on Haverford to Essex; right on Essex to Windsor; left on Windsor to the Memorial site, at Wynnewood.
The Memorial Day Parade needs at least 3 to 6 volunteers to be Parade Marshals. No experience is needed - just a couple hours of your time. These volunteers help with the line-up and then walk along with the parade to keep the parade moving in an orderly fashion. They would meet John Nardi at the Legion Hall at 8:30 am, where he will assign them their duties. Anyone adult interested should contact John Nardi either by email at email@example.com or by phone 610-664-5504.

Narberth Comprehensive Plan
This link takes you to draft of the proposed Comprehensive Plan on the Borough website. A Comprehensive plan is a long-range planning tool that helps municipalities guide future growth and development. It provides broad goals and specific strategies and implementation recommendations that form the basis for future decision-making to achieve the vision for the future.
How and why is Narberth creating a comprehensive plan? Narberth Borough set out to adopt its first Comprehensive plan to identify the community’s shared vision for the future and establish guidelines for a coordinated implementation of strategies to aid in achieving this vision. This plan is the result of a year-long process of data gathering and public input to establish the community vision and attempts to answer the question of what defines “Narberth”. The plan links the various causes and effects of change in the borough, and provides goals and recommendations to guide borough leaders in making decisions that will further the goals of the community.
How do I participate? You can attend one of the upcoming public meetings or provide feedback via the link provided on the Borough’s website, or here.
All these events and more are listed in this Narberth calendar. To stay up to date between these emails, use the Narberth online website, Facebook page, Twitter and Instagram, and join the conversation in the "Narberth" Facebook group.
