Over the weekend, Southborough veterans, officials, scouts and other residents honored Memorial Day. On Friday night, a large group of volunteers turned up at the cemetery for the traditional replacement of flags on veterans’ graves.

And on rainy Memorial Day morning, the parade and ceremonies were held from 9:00 to 10:30 am. Participants proceeded through the cemeteries and to memorials, stopping along the way to remember soldiers who sacrificed their lives in service to our country.

Here are some images from both days (click below to “keep reading” to see the rest of the photos):
