Help place flags on the graves of Southborough’s veterans

The parade isn’t Southborough’s only Memorial Day tradition. Another is placing an American flag at the grave of every Southborough veteran in tribute to their service to the country.

VFW Post 3276 and American Legion Post 161 will lead the flag-placing on Friday night starting at 6:00 pm in the Rural Cemetery on Route 85. All Southborough residents are invited to join them. The group will meet in front of the Maintenance Building at the back of the cemetery.

Memorial Day

In visiting the cemetary to view the veterans graves I came upon the grave of
Osgood Hadley (1838-1914) a civil war veteran and a Medal of Honor recepient. To think we have the honor of having a hero buried in our town. Of course all the veterans are heros. There are many WWI and WWII buried in Southborough and we should honor them on Memorial Day.

I was equally moved by that–never knew that tid bit of information. I also found myself really liking the name Osgood and so naturally i hopped on Google when i got home.
Osgood means “divine creator/divine goth”
