The Memorial Day parade in Wilmington made its way past the Diocese of Wilmington chancery building at 1925 Delaware Avenue.
Four-year-old Mina Schweiger, a resident of the neighborhood, was thrilled to see a familiar face in motorcycle Officer Sam Smith. Officer Smith is Mina’s uncle and godfather.
Mina is enrolled in pre-K at St. Anthony of Padua School. Her dad, Bruce, is a lieutenant with the Wilmington Fire Department.
The city police motorcycle unit was part of the parade.
The parade wound its way to Broom Street where there was a ceremony at the Soldiers and Sailors monument. The family belongs to St. Ann’s parish.
