FOR THE SECOND year in a row, the Port Richmond Memorial Day Parade has been canceled due to a lack of funding and volunteers, according to a parade volunteer.
"Everyone wants to watch the parade but no one understands how much work it takes," said Patty-Pat Kozlowski, former president and current executive director of Port Richmond on Patrol and Civic Association (PROPAC). The organization has helped put on the parade in prior years.
Kozlowski said she hopes the 50-year-old hallmark will return next year. However, for that to occur, she said, more people need to step up.
