Memorial Day in My Hometown

 We've lived in this small rural town now for one and a half years.  This was the first Memorial Day program we could attend because Covid canceled the last two years.

It's always celebrated on the 30th so if school was in session the school kids would be bussed over to participate. It was a Monday holiday as you know but still attendance was high.

It takes place just across the street from our house.  How could we not attend?

Gathering.  Granddaughters in attendance with sun hats on.

Benches brought out from the Meeting House.

Boy Scouts were the color guard.

One of the selectmen was master of ceremonies.

We marched to the nearest stream to put in a wreath for Navy veterans remembered,

A wreath for others laid at foot of Civil War monument.

Hot dogs, chips and ice cream provided afterward.
